Manchester City established a lead in their group...

...over Porto, Marseille and Olympiacos. The one goal they conceded in their opener against Porto was the only goal they conceded in the entire group stage. Chelsea’s route to Porto has been far bumpier than their rival.

Chelsea is vulnerable...

...due to fitness worries surrounding goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and midfielder N'Golo Kante. Both have been crucial in Chelsea's run to the final and Kante's availability, in particular, is integral to their win.
