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.
