Some Atlético Madrid games are fun to cover, others aren't. Colchonero Chat arrives to talk about a match that definitely is part of the latter category.

Robert Walker (@Trauppin) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón. He is the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, charged with analyzing Atlético's 0-0 draw at Alavés on Saturday. Among the talking points: Diego Godín's spitting incident, swelling goal droughts from Yannick Carrasco and Kévin Gameiro, and the continued success of Miguel Ángel Moyá in the Atleti goal.

Attention is then turned to Wednesday and the big clash at the Calderón against Barcelona. The guys believe that a completely different Atlético will take the pitch in the Copa del Rey semifinal first leg, and it may or may not be enough to score an advantage over the holders. Plus, how severe is José Giménez' injury?
