Chelsea ace Kai Havertz feels Atletico Madrid and Porto were the toughest opponents the Blues faced on their run to the Champions League final, selecting the pair over Real Madrid.


The Blues will compete against Manchester City for the biggest prize in European club football in Porto on Saturday, in what will be the second all-English affair in three years.


“Porto and Atletico were difficult to play because of their defensive strengths,” Havertz told Chelsea’s website. “They set themselves up in their own halves and wait for you to make a mistake.


“For me, those were the most difficult games. My favourite game would be the second leg against Real Madrid when we reached the final. That was good.


“There’s been a few good games, but for me the highlight would have to be the game against Real.”
