Jeremy Beren and Rob Walker reconvene on Colchonero Chat and analyze Atlético Madrid’s dour 0-0 draw at Real Valladolid on Sunday, the final game before an international break. Points of discussion include:
- Atlético’s now-sturdy defense
- The team’s inability to score away from home
- The disconnect between Atleti’s attacking plan and execution
- Diego Costa’s terrible form
- The lack of chances for several new signings
Update: Barcelona did go on to beat Sevilla, 4-0.
