Jack Grimse (@JackGrimse) is a content creator at Copa90 US and an avid Bundesliga fan. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins Jeremy Beren to discuss Atlético Madrid’s bounceback win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

Atlético managed just 32 percent possession at home but handed the Bundesliga leaders their first loss this season. Jack and Jeremy talk about that low possession number and why Diego Simeone is so comfortable with it. They also analyze why this was arguably Atleti’s best display of the season to this point in addition to the goals from Saúl Ñíguez and Antoine Griezmann. (Plus, the Frenchman’s badge kiss.)

Then, Jeremy previews Atlético’s fixture against Athletic Club on Saturday, while Jack looks ahead to Der Klassiker and whether Dortmund can knock off a wobbly Bayern Munich.

(Note: Manolo Lama his since retracted his report about José Giménez’s health.)
