Dortmund suffer after another bus incident, the 'worst thing that could happen'

Dortmund suffer after another bus incident, the 'worst thing that could happen'

Kylian Mbappe was the star of the show as he scored twice to relegate a struggling Dortmund side to defeat, and are now favourites to progress into the semi-finals for the first time since they got to the final in 2004.

Monaco are not just fighting for glory in Europe - they are also top of the French league and in the French Cup semifinals, but fatigue is their biggest foe now. "I try to help by sharing my feelings and we learn things together through this process".

With the fixture rescheduled for the day after, a shaken Borussia looked all at sea against Monaco and their coach Thomas Tuchel acknowledged his side had been ill-prepared to play so soon after the attack. "We were not good enough but I don't want to criticise the players".

Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel has insisted that last week's attack on the team bus will make the club stronger going forward.

Police delayed the bus for around 20 minutes, delaying kickoff for about five minutes.

"We wanted to leave at 7:15 p.m".

UEFA said heavy traffic was to blame for the delay in the visitors arriving, but Tuchel told Sky Germany: "Let's say that the incident is very unfortunate".

On the pitch, Dortmund conceded after just three minutes.

The away defence backed off as Benjamin Mendy advanced and when the full-back's powerful left-foot strike stung the palms of goalkeeper Roman Burki, the 18-year-old Mbappe was on hand to convert the rebound.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who had a spell on loan at Monaco in 2010/11 - is in form in the competition, having scored seven times in eight Champions League games this term. "We stood there for 16, 17 minutes".

After the drama of last week's attack, this was a welcome return to euphoric, attacking football that was a joy to watch from start to finish.

Monaco will meet Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday April 19.

Falcao lofted a shot narrowly over after breaking down the right in the 65th and Mbappe had a low shot saved moments later from a similar position.

Monaco made a fast start.

The whole Monaco bench rushed to jump on him as they celebrated wildly knowing their place in the last four was definitely secure.

Tuchel has become more than a coach to his players in the last few days, reaching out to them on an emotional level.
