If you observe in the manga, it is clear Clones are weaker than the origionals. Look at the Mokuton clones fighting Madara... they were getting raped. Hashirama on his own was fighting on part with Madara compared to them, and Madara was actually trying.
Furhtermore look at Naruto vs Neji: The clones almost all disperse from being hit once as well as show a limited reaction time/ability to fight.
The clone may have the same level of chakra; however, being something that isn't a 100% real entity means that it lacks the overall reactions and precision of the original.
Recall Naruto learning the Rasenshuriken. When he spawned clones...they all had the same level of experience; however, as they dispersed, Naruto slowly gained more experience than the clones that had yet to disperse which means he was better than his clones that had equal levels of chakra.
The same notion applies here: The clones are used for basic purpouses or diversion, and do not equal the original in terms of complete combat ability.
