Colchonero Chat has caught its breath after the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals and now sits down to chat it up with the enemy (relatively speaking).
Luis Mazariegos (@luism8989) is a manager at Barça Blaugranes, SB Nation’s Barcelona blog. He is the guest on this edition of the program, discussing and reveling in Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Atlético Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderón. The result - and its two away goals - give Barça an advantage heading into the second leg, but we wonder just how comfortable that advantage is. Also, Atlético were much improved in the second half of this game - is this improvement another mirage, or the sight of a corner being turned?
Plus, Jeremy and Luis preview Athletic Club’s trip to Camp Nou and Leganés’ visit to the Calderón this weekend, which will give both Barcelona and Atlético a chance to make up a bit of ground in LaLiga. And, of course, there’s Champions League talk, with some breaking news on Hakan Calhanoglu’s four-month suspension.
