Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this long-awaited edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to review Atlético Madrid’s last two wins and preview Saturday’s match at Barcelona.
Rob recaps briefly Saturday’s 4-0 thrashing at Alavés before the podders dive into Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Girona. The mattress makers’ first-ever win over the Catalans featured goals from Diego Godín and Antoine Griezmann in addition to more heroics from Jan Oblak — Rob and Jeremy break down the decent team showing before moving on to Patreon questions.
The guys wonder about the future of Atlético’s defense, a possible Diego Costa sale, sticking with Diego Simeone and more before they take a closer look at the weekend’s top of the table clash with Barcelona.
