Colchonero Chat 138: Captain Griezmann and the Brown Dirt Cucumber

Once more, Atlético did little away from home and now face even more questions from Jeremy Beren and Rob Walker.

Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) and the duo stay awake as long as they can to discuss Atlético Madrid’s 1-1 draw at Leganés on Saturday afternoon.

For the third year running, Atlético failed to win at Butarque as 18th-placed Leganés rallied in the last 10 minutes to snatch a point. Rob and Jeremy talk about Antoine Griezmann’s marvelous free kick, more struggles away from the Wanda Metropolitano, the team’s extremely disappointing goal return and Saúl’s pointed post-match comments. They also wonder if Atlético have started to stagnate despite a calendar year that has seen the mattress makers win two major trophies.

Also, the podders preview Tuesday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, where Atleti will seek to exact some revenge for the 4-0 loss in the Oct. 24 reverse.
