Ruthless Spanish efficiency saw Atlético Madrid on the precipice of the Copa del Rey semifinals, and here's Colchonero Chat to analyze it.

Robert Walker (@Trauppin) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of the program. He joins to discuss the Copa del Rey quarterfinals in full, but particularly Atlético's 3-0 win over Eibar, which featured set piece goals (Mattress Maker of the Match Antoine Griezmann was responsible for both), a very attacking set-up, another promising performance from Nico Gaitán and much more.

Plus, the podders dive into a report in the Independent this week detailing Atleti's shady finances - which have been an issue since before the club changed hands through fraudulent means in 2003 - and how they are tied into A Stadium Called Wanda.
