Trying to Understand Atlético's Form This Season

On this week’s episode, Robbie Dunne and Jamie Kemp begin with the latest edition of ‘Stat Corner’ – among the three topics for this week, they take a look at Robert Lewandowski’s performance against Atlético Madrid after he did something not done against Diego Simeone’s side since Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2016. They also take a look at Celta Vigo’s big win against Sevilla, along with a stat to show how different things might look under their new manager. 

After that, they dig into Atlético Madrid’s turbulent week and their wild fluctuations in form at home and away. They beat Inter Milan at home after losing to Cádiz away before being beaten comfortable by Barcelona on Sunday night. What gives? They discuss stats, tactics and offer some theories as to why this keeps happening.
