1. A tie joins a note (same pitch) without any note intervening in the same group or same note stem direction.
2. The first quaver C is not long enough in value to tie onto the 2nd C
Also suitable to pedal this cadence to join that awkward stretched chord.
You could also ask why the same notes 8ve higher (1st bar) are not slurred in the left hand.... but slurred in the last bar? mmmm?
Schubert added the slur to create more texture, so fuller pedal needed.
Hope that helps
