Nagoya: Corinthians coach Tite doesn't think Chelsea's recent form struggles will boost his team's chances of winning the Club World Cup.
European champion Chelsea and Copa Libertadores winner Corinthians have a bye into the semifinals of the tournament that features the champion clubs from FIFA's six confederations, plus a team from the host nation.
"In a tournament like this there are no favorites," Tite said Friday. "Past results won't determine who wins the tournament. You have to play a full 90 minutes and there is very little margin for error."
