Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) for a deep dive into Atlético Madrid’s 2-0 win over Juventus on Wednesday night.
A Stadium Called Wanda bounced and roared as Atlético overpowered the Italian champions in the second half, and Rob and Jeremy discuss the catalysts behind the big win (including VAR). They also talk about Diego Simeone’s goal celebrations and how an older back four was able to quiet Juve’s dangerous attacking trio. The podders analyze key performances throughout the squad before looking ahead to next month’s second leg in Turin.
Then, Rob and Jeremy preview Sunday’s clash against bogey team Villarreal and whether the intensity will drop again as Atleti return to domestic action.
