A week ago, Luis García revealed that there was so much tension and responsibility in the players, that when he got to the locker room he saw that they were not celebrating the victory, something that this time was different: "Today they celebrated the victory, it is difficult to win in this category , and the players have asked me for two days off, but it is not the time for that yet, tomorrow it's time to train and continue ".
