Dortmund bomb explosions
Last night’s game between Borussia Dortmund and Monaco was postponed due to an explosion just a few kilometres away from the stadium.
The two teams were due to play the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final in Dortmund tonight, but the game was postponed until tonight due to this unforeseen and shocking event.
The bus carrying the Dortmund team to the stadium was caught up in the explosion, leaving one person injured: Marc Bartra.
Police are currently investigating the situation, and a 25-year-old Iraqi has been detained.
Sahin’s emotional interview
So, the game was played tonight, and Dortmund lost 2-3.
Watching the game, it was obviously hard to gauge just how much the incident had affected the Dortmund players, and to what extent it was affecting their performance.
But now that we’ve heard from some Dortmund players and staff post-match, it really seems like the game shouldn’t have been played tonight.
Thomas Tuchel has said that it was too soon to get over the commotion, and it’s quite clear from Nuri Sahin’s emotional interview that his mind wasn’t on football tonight.
