Each season, Diego Simeone sets third place in LaLiga as the minimum target for Atlético Madrid. On Sunday, his team achieved this goal by drawing with Real Betis, and Colchonero Chat is here to break it all down.
Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of the program. He analyzes a rather blah affair in Seville, including Dani Ceballos’ wonder goal, Stefan Savić bundling in an offside equalizer and some heroics from Mattress Maker of the Match Jan Oblak. The podders agree that considering the circumstances, finishing third is good for Atlético, but they wonder what might have been if not for injuries and inconsistency.
Jeremy and Rob move on to discuss potential summer business and preview the season finale against Athletic Bilbao at the Vicente Calderón next Sunday.

Yes, third is the best a team with Atleti’s resources can hope for.
No, Atleti were out of the title hunt very early on and never made Barcelona and Real Madrid sweat.
