Trying to decide b/w canon Canon G5X mkII and SX740HS

My use is a pocket travel camera.  No Vlogging or anything like that.  I will from time to time use it to video ski training of kids and so will need decent zoom.  Main question is regarding the different zoom capabilities of these two cameras.  I’m probably comparing apples to orange but I’m wondering- Since the G5 has the larger sensor, will I be able to digitally zoom in and get a decent zoom as compared to the Optical Zoom capabilities of the 740?

Said another way, if I zoom in digitally to the maximum with the G5Xii how many times zoom is that compared to the 40x optical zoom of the 740?  And how would the video quality compare?

I’m hoping that I can get decent videos with the G5X because I’d rather have that camera for all the other benefits over the 740.
