Carlo Valladares has the last word on Wednesday win in Germany

Griezmann signed one year contract renewal on Tuesday

Atletico Madrid set themselves up for a good chance to reach the Champions League quarter-finals after they won 4-2 over Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg of their Round of 16 tie at the BayArena.

Watch the video below to see Carlo Valladares and Atletico Fans’ four takeaways from Tuesday’s win:


  • Please give feedback on the new 5 minute video format!

  • Ahmad Musa

    Nice job more of this please

  • AndersAT

    Very interesting. I agree on a lot of points. I would not call Saul a “wonderkid” though, but he is definitely a big game player.

    Regarding the format. I think when you are using video you should use video clips or more pictures to highlight your points, otherwise it is just like a written comment, but with you reading it aloud, which is not preferable in my opinion.

    But keep up the good work.

  • Marik Zenbema

    I want Bayern Munich or Real Madrid in the quarterfinal.

  • Ucce

    Yes, might as well play Real Madrid right away. It would be hard to handle another loss in the final against them, but hopefully we can eliminate them.

  • Marik Zenbema

    You have no idea, rabbit.

  • Zinni DUDU

    Maybe showing more scenes from the match, while you are speaking would be authentic. But still a great format.

    Hope you will do extra video aswell after the game against Barca on Sunnday.

    It would also nice to do a longer Podcast (as a audio data) with someone else.

  • Zinni DUDU

    He still is not able to produce chances for our strikers which is for me his most weakness. We can not expect him score always goals like that. If he is not producing goals like that, he is more or less useless because he is losing to easy the ball or is not able put our strikers through on the last quarter of the pitch. I mean imagine a player like Veratti or Pastore with Koke. Our strikers would get tons of chances.

    Basicly: Saul has everthing but not creativity what is one of the most important aspects of an midfielder, because your job is mainly to produce something for the strikers.

  • Maril Zenbema

    It’s better to have a striker or winger with firm dribbling skills.

  • Marik Zenbema

    Like Carrasco or Grizi.

  • It’s hard to add highlight footage due to copy right difficulties with UEFA, LaLiga and YouTube, but I’ll try.

    Subscribe if you can!

  • Ucce

    Eh, what? Stupid retard.

  • Usavicente Calderon

    Great review. I hope you do more of these. I can agree with all these points. The remark about Saul and having some individual play makers. I think, Carrasco has been that person for the first half of the season. I am calling the Saul the “German SLAYER!” He seems to save his best for the German teams. Maybe we will get BVB in the next round.

  • Vagabond Messi

    Are you from spain? Your accent is not heavy as other spaniards, good job , mate.

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    Keep this up, I always appreciate hearing points about the team being talked about, especially the differences in views.

    On Saul however I will say that besides scoring that goal he wasn’t that good in this match either, I just hope he picks his game up in the passing area soon

  • Vagabond Messi

    Yes, apart from Scoring he didn’t do anything else.
