Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins the program to recount Atlético Madrid’s intense draw at Real Madrid in LaLiga on Saturday night.
Atlético made it six successive seasons without losing at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in league play, tying a decades-old mark. Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) discuss the first half VAR controversy, José Giménez’s heroic second half and where both Madrid sides go from here — Gareth Bale faces a spell on the sidelines, while Atlético sit just two points off the top in what may become an actual race to the title.
In addition, the podders preview Wednesday night’s Champions League clash against Belgian champions Club Brugge and who Diego Simeone should swap into his starting XI for that match.
