Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League match with Monaco has been postponed following the explosion that damaged the German club’s team bus prior to kick-off.

he club posted a message on Twitter to thank Monaco fans who were heard chanting in support of Dortmund inside the stadium.

“Thanks for your patience and understanding and the “Dortmund! Dortmund” chants, dear supporters of Monaco!” they said.
