Atlético Madrid may miss penalties, but Colchonero Chat doesn't miss a game in which Atlético miss a penalty.

Renato Gonçalves (@renatodsg) is a manager at SB Nation blog Barça Blaugranes. He is the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, and he joins to gloat a little bit, but also deliberate on nine-man Barcelona's 1-1 draw with 10-man Atleti on Tuesday, which saw the former advance to a fourth straight Copa del Rey final. Among the highlights from this entertaining discussion: Barcelona deserving or not deserving to win, the success inherent to a Copa del Rey semifinal run, what excuse Real Madrid will use this year so as not to have the Santiago Bernabéu host the final, how Diego Godín recovers from injury and why Atleti are like Brock Lesnar.

Jeremy and Renato also talk this weekend's LaLiga slate, which could see the Alavés buzzsaw slice through Barça again and Celta Vigo rattle the cage at the Vicente Calderón.
