This Colchonero Chat was recorded on Friday, but everything talked about remains pertinent today.

Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) is the editor of Managing Madrid, a regular contributor to FourFourTwo and the guest on this edition of the program. His appearance is timely, as there's a Madrid Derby taking place tonight which could change the course of the 2016-17 LaLiga season and stuff. The podders discuss Real Madrid's various injuries, up to and including Toni Kroos, Alvaro Morata and Pepe, as well as Atletico Madrid's fresher legs and more attack-oriented system and how Madrid can combat it tactically.

Jeremy and Kiyan also wonder if Luka Modric really is Madrid's most important player and how far el derbi has come since the dawn of the Simeone Era.

As a reminder, Jeremy will be on Managing Madrid's post-derby podcast on Sunday. Sunday is the day on which Jeremy will make an appearance on MM's pod, so do be on the lookout for that.
