Chelsea secured passage to their third Champions League final with a comprehensive 3-1 aggregate victory over Real Madrid in the semi-final and the scoreline flattered Zinedine Zidane’s side. The Blues will face Manchester City in the Champions League final.

But former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has highlighted this lack of a clinical instinct among the Blues squad as the difference between the two English finalists.

I would say City looks more mature,” Wenger told beIN Sports. “Both are very good in transition and both teams can maintain a high level, a high rhythm for 90 minutes.

“‘We could see that Real Madrid when they had to chase the game in the second half, they never found a way to be dangerous because the discipline of these English teams, the capacity to remain focused and the transition of pace to go quickly forwards was always a threat. Last night Paris Saint-Germain and tonight against Real Madrid – who are two big teams.

“On that front they are quite level. I find, the difference between the two teams is that conversion rate of chances created is, at the moment, much higher at City. They need less chances to score goals than Chelsea. But that can change, the final is on the 29th. It’s 24 days – a lot can change in between.”

Manchester City progressed to the final following a 4-1 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain, the team Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was then manager of.
