Chelsea reached the final in 2012 before losing to another Brazilian side, Corinthians, but they come into this one as favourites despite an underwhelming semi-final display in midweek.
The Blues edged out Saudi side Al Hilal with a 1-0 win thanks to Romelu Lukaku, while Palmeiras – the 2021 Copa Libertadores champions – made the final after a 2-0 victory over Al Ahly.
Thomas Tuchel is expected to be on the touchline again for Chelsea having missed the semi-final isolating due to contracting Covid-19.
Here is everything you need to know about the match.
