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) to analyze Atlético Madrid’s drought-snapping 2-0 win over Villarreal on Sunday afternoon.

For the first time since 2014, Atlético beat Villarreal in a home match, and Rob and Jeremy are here to break it all down. The podders discuss another fine display from Álvaro Morata, who at last opened his Atleti account and poked fun at VAR in the process. They also answer Patreon questions on Diego Simeone going for the metaphorical throat and who has the edge on the Morata versus Diego Costa battle. Finally, the guys wonder if next weekend’s Clásico will reopen the title race to some degree.
