This year's African club champions will face Pachuca of Mexico in the quarter-finals of the 2010 Club World Cup.

Title-holders TP Mazembe of DR Congo twice meet Tunisia's Esperance in the African Champions League final over the next month to determine the victor.

Should the African champions beat Pahchuca, a semi-final date awaits with Internacional, the Brazilian side who won this year's Copa Libertadores.

The Club World Cup runs between 08-18 December in the United Arab Emirates.

Fifa conducted the draw in Zurich on Wednesday, with local Abu Dhabi side Al Wahda set to open the competition against Oceania champions Hekari United of Papua New Guinea.

European champions Inter Milan and next month's Asian champions make up the seven-team tournament, while Pachuca represent the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) region.

The first leg of the 2010 African Champions League final will take place on Sunday in Lubumbashi as three-time African champions Mazembe host Esperance.

The decisive second leg will be played in Tunisia on the weekend of 13-14 November.

Esperance, who were last crowned Africa's best in 2000, have never played at the Club World Cup.
