Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins ItC site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to break down Atlético Madrid’s 2-0 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday evening.
It was a professional performance from a shorthanded Atlético, one which saw two academy kids start in central defense and Vitolo get a rare run-out. (I know, we were surprised, too.) Rob and Jeremy discuss how Javi Montero and Toni Moya performed, how Jan Oblak continues to make incredible saves, Antoine Griezmann’s free kick prowess and what developments to monitor as the season winds down.
Then, the podders ponder Juanfran’s contract renewal and whether Diego Costa should leave Atlético in the summer.
