“Very well, physically quite well. Since the time of confinement we have been training at home following a physical plan and we are doing very well. We have good feelings. It is clear that we do not have that competition rhythm that gives you to play every seven days, but what I see training is that the team is very well. There are no excuses”. Adrian Güemes he believes a lot in his Portugalete on the eve of measuring the Basconia in the playoffs.
