Yes, that's two Colchonero Chats in three days. The world's gone mad - or, more accurately, Atletico Madrid's fixture list.

Robert Walker (@Trauppin) is a staff writer at Into the Calderon. He is the guest on this edition of program, discussing Atletico's surprising 3-2 defeat to Las Palmas on Tuesday. Atleti are through to the Copa del Rey quarterfinals regardless despite a slow start and an un-Atletico-like drop in intensity in the final minutes.

Real Betis are next on Saturday, and the resurgent Andalusians pay a visit to the Vicente Calderon. Jeremy and Robert preview a game which could see Atleti run its Liga Santander winning run to three.

Finally, a round of transfer talk, wherein Nico Gaitan's link to Tottenham Hotspur and Alexis Sanchez's possible Arsenal departure are debated and discussed.
