MM Podcast: A look ahead to Atleti

Kiyan answers your questions post-Valencia / pre-Derbi


On this episode, recorded a day after Marcelo's dramatic game-winner against Valencia, Kiyan Sobhani took your questions on the game, and looked ahead to Tuesday's UCL Derbi. Topics discussed:

  • Transitioning to life without Ronaldo (not anytime soon)
  • Addressing why Modric and Kroos looked less incisive than the midfield which carved Deportivo
  • Benzema's place in the starting XI
  • Casemiro's recklessness
  • Marcelo vs Roberto Carlos (something that is way too early to address, but was asked about)
  • Transfer rumours: Hazard, and left back options
  • Atletico's injury concerns
  • Real Madrid's probable line-up against Atletico
