Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. Rob stops by to wax poetic about Atlético Madrid’s 5-2 thrashing of Sevilla on Sunday night, a victory which few saw coming.

Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) analyze how Atlético took advantage of Sevilla’s defensive errors and put up a five-spot despite starting the match with the infamous quadruple pivot. The podders also recount the amazing sequence that led to Diego Costa’s opening goal (captured in tweet form by ESPNFC’s Dermot Corrigan), marvel at Antoine Griezmann’s hat trick, express mild disappointment at Sevilla’s two late goals (one of which was nicely taken) and how Diego Simeone entered full troll mode.

The guys go on to preview Wednesday’s derby against Leganés and wonder once more if there is league while Rob peruses Lokomotiv Moscow’s squad.
