Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins host and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) for a discussion of Saturday’s thrillingly dull 0-0 draw between city rivals Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid. Jeremy and Rob talk about Atlético’s outstanding defense, Antoine Griezmann’s latest strugglefest, the karmic overtones of Sergio Ramos’ broken nose, the status of LaLiga’s title race and much more.

The guys also preview Wednesday’s Champions League clash with AS Roma, which Atlético must win to have any hope whatsoever of qualifying for the UCL knockouts. They wonder whether the fixture will bring more disappointment and frustration or if Lady Luck will finally smile upon the mattress makers.
