Colchonero Chat returns to look back and reflect on Atlético Madrid's fourth successive Champions League exit at the feet of Real Madrid.

Robbie Dunne (@robbiejdunne) is a manager at Into the Calderón and a journalist working with AS English in Madrid. He also attended Wednesday's Champions League semifinal second leg at the Vicente Calderón and joins to relive that experience, how he was able to attend the match, what the atmosphere was like and why Diego Simeone flung his jacket into the crowd in the second half. Jeremy and Robbie reflect on the aggregate loss and discuss a summer transfer wish list for Atlético.

The guys also preview Atleti's Sunday fixture at Real Betis, where a draw will see los colchoneros clinch third place in LaLiga and secure a spot in next season's Champions League group stage.
