Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón, and Gianluca Lia (@gianlia96) is Into the Calderón’s Atlético Féminas correspondent. Rob is up first, joining the program to discuss a very impressive Atlético Madrid win over Sevilla on Sunday, which was the team’s first win over a top four side this season and may or may not have opened up the race for third place as Atlético continue one of its best runs of the season. Rob also opines on how watching Eliaquim Mangala is like watching a finely-tuned orchestra.
Gianluca then stops by for an engaging discussion on Atleti’s women’s team, which is unbeaten with eight weeks of Liga Iberdrola to go and four points clear of Barcelona in the race for the title. Gianluca and Jeremy talk about the team’s key players, the awesome Sonia Bermúdez, what the ingredients to success have been, how women’s football is starting to find an audience and what kind of exposure the future holds.
