Euan McTear (@emctear) is a Spanish football journalist and Into the Calderón columnist. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) for a discussion centered on Atlético Madrid’s 1-0 win over Real Betis in LaLiga on Sunday afternoon.

Ángel Correa’s winning goal sparks a debate over whether the Argentine should be week-in, week-out starter for Diego Simeone. Euan and Jeremy also break down Nikola Kalinić’s first Atlético start and Simeone’s strengthening defense in addition to the Ballon d’Or race. Diego Godín, Antoine Griezmann and Jan Oblak made that award’s 30-man shortlist, and the guys wonder if Griezmann will become the first Atleti player ever to capture it.
