Gabe Lezra, Om Arvind and Kiyan Sobhani break down Real Madrid’s huge win against Atletico Madrid in the derbi on Saturday. No flying stuffed rats or cortes de manga here--but there is a ton of tactical analysis, individual player performance discussion and questions to be answered...which is why we gave you all a big 85 minutes show!

We discussed:

- Kiyan’s favorite performance of the Solari era

- Om’s tactical rundown

- What happened in the first half, and what the goals changed

- The extent to which VAR swung this match (spoiler alert: not very much)

- Wasn’t that a foul on Vinicius?

- Tossing rats

- Reversion to the mean incoming? Or is this the new normal?

- What considerations would go into deciding to renew Solari’s contract?

- Sergio Ramos the scoring machine

- Morata: unlucky but not a bad move for them

- Reguilón with the statement match

- Casemiro like Carvajal in that he needs competition

- What happened at halftime? What changed tactically, and what those changes meant.

- xG questions and what the advanced stats can tell us

- and more!
