Colchonero Chat has waited with bated breath for the return of the Champions League, and with Atlético Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen set to kick off in ~36 hours, a full preview episode only seems fair.

Jack Grimse (@jackgrimse) is a Bundesliga writer at Paste Magazine and other outlets. He is the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, here to analyze a young but tricky Leverkusen side bent on Champions League progress in the midst of a troubled league campaign (sounds familiar). Jack and Jeremy assess what's changed for both sides since they last met in 2015, give their starting lineups for the first leg and predict the final scoreline over two legs.

Oh, and Kévin Gameiro scored a hat trick in less than five minutes on Saturday. That is talked about as well.
