The team says that one player was injured, and that he’s been transported to a hospital. Dortmund’s release also says that there is no danger in the vicinity of the stadium.
Bild is reporting that an explosive on the road caused the windows of the bus to shatter, and that the player injured was defender Marc Bartra.
Just over an hour after the explosion, Borussia Dortmund announced that the match would be delayed. The Champions League quarterfinal first leg between Dortmund and AS Monaco will now take place 22 hours later than scheduled, on Wednesday at 12:45 p.m. ET.
