Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, which centers on Atlético Madrid’s Europa League triumph in Lyon.

Atlético’s 3-0 win against an overmatched Marseille marked the club’s third Europa League crown in eight years. Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) delve into a comfortable victory at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, which saw Antoine Griezmann net a brace and Gabi score his first goal for two and a half years. The podders analyze how Atleti made the Europa League look relatively easy and what that says about the team’s growth over the past year.

After taking questions from Colchonero Chat Amigos, the guys then turn (sort of) to Sunday’s finale against Eibar. Los colchoneros need a draw to make second place theirs for the first time since 1991, but Diego Simeone is not expected to field a strong team after Wednesday’s win.
