It didn't look like they would get there with Max Scherzer trying to re-assert the rule of the ace in the elimination game.

In Rob Gronkowski's estimation, "Tom always brings the ampness to the table". Brady stretched and ran with resistance bands around his waist, a somewhat unique way to get ready on game day.

Klopp is spot on with his analysis there because United are a really strong side. I also lost. I won big matches, I lost big matches, so I can not say I like to go there because I'm always successful, because it's not true, but I do like to go there.
