Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) is Chief Editor of SB Nation site Managing Madrid and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to discuss Saturday night’s Madrid Derby in LaLiga.
Real Madrid will attempt to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Sevilla on Wednesday, while Atlético Madrid will enter this match in good spirits after they notched a third straight win in all comps on Tuesday. Kiyan and Jeremy converse about the job Julen Lopetegui has done to this point and discuss keys to victory for each team. The podders also talk about a change in role for Antoine Griezmann, a change in role for Luka Modric, Lopetegui’s goalkeeper headache and how Atlético whittled down their deficit in LaLiga from seven points to two.
Finally, the guys give their scoreline predictions in this can’t-miss episode.
