Into the Calderón’s Rob Walker is back on the pod to join Jeremy Beren in examining Atlético Madrid’s goalless draw with neighbors Real Madrid in Saturday night league action. The guys also take a look at Tuesday’s Champions League tilt in Russia against Lokomotiv Moscow.

Among the talking points:

  • Whether the draw is a point gained or two points lost
  • The scarcity of chances in a more open-than-usual Madrid Derby
  • Thomas freaking Partey
  • Jan Oblak’s huge 75th minute save
  • How Diego Simeone’s changes kept Atlético in neutral (Ángel Correa’s big missed header aside)
  • Another strong Stefan Savić performance
  • João Félix versus Eden Hazard
  • Missing Álvaro Morata
