Robbie Dunne (@robbiejdunne) is a sports journalist based in Madrid and a site manager at Into the Calderón. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins fellow Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to discuss Atlético Madrid’s very slim 1-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday afternoon.

Robbie and Jeremy analyze Diego Costa’s return and how he fits next to Álvaro Morata, and they also talk about a possible move to left wing for Antoine Griezmann. They discuss Rayo’s strong performance and Jan Oblak’s heroics while wondering about any carryover effects into Wednesday’s game against Juventus.

The podders also discuss that massive tilt and whether the Juve tie represents the two biggest games of Diego Simeone’s Atlético tenure.
