Dortmund: police held team bus for 20 minutes before game

Jan Ortega | 03 May, 2017, 04:20

The French league leaders will face Dortmund at the Stade Louis II defending the 3-2 lead they secured in last week's first leg. They have climbed to the top of the Ligue 1 table by averaging almost three goals a game, and Jardim vowed his side will not alter their style with the Bundesliga outfit in the principality.

The visitors grew increasingly ragged as the minutes passed and conceded a third goal in the 81st minute, scored by Valere Germain seconds after he came on as a substitute for Mbappe.

Meanwhile, Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has warned his team to maintain their concentration levels as they aim to reach the semi-finals for the first time since finishing as runners-up in 2004.

Dortmund said on their Twitter feed that the bus had been held up by police at their hotel for 20 minutes.

The Federal Prosecutor's office in Germany is investigating after three explosions hit the Dortmund team bus as it drove to their home stadium for the first leg last week.

"What more could you ask for than to be in the semi-finals?"

Nobody expected Monaco - conquerors of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the last round - to get this far, but they have done it playing a superb brand of soccer that has yielded 141 goals so far this season.

"We started well in the second half but did not manage [to score] any other goals".

"Our rivals will want to draw us [on Friday] but our ambition is to enjoy it and play with our attacking qualities like we always do".

And yet another record: he is now only the sixth player to score in his first four starts in Europe's premier club competition.

"We'll try to be flat out in the Champions League and the league, but it's normal that we're more exhausted than teams who play less".

"We are expecting Dortmund to be much stronger, they have digested what happened", the coach added.

"We are ready for the game and focused".

"The departure of the bus was scheduled for 19:15 so everybody was in the bus at that time and police were there to escort us to the stadium", Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel said. "I wish them the best and I think they can win the title".
