AS Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund, Champions League 2016/17

Vera Richards | 21 April, 2017, 05:15

The first leg was not without its problems, after it was delayed by 24 hours following an attack on the Borussia Dortmund bus, leaving defender Marc Bartra with a broken arm.

The match was rescheduled for Wednesday and Monaco won 3-2 to put itself in a strong position to reach the semifinals.

The Borussia Dortmund players have had to overcome a very hard situation this past week, but they would have been eager to get back to their best and make an impact in the away leg.

FC's Raf Honigstein says that Borussia Dortmund's Champions League defeats were tainted by the attack on the team bus.

Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, skipper Radamel Falcao and substitute Valere Germain got their goals with Marco Reus netting for Dortmund on a memorable night for the hosts. And now they are the favorites to go through to the semi-final of this year's competition.

"The departure of the bus was scheduled for 1915 so everybody was in the bus at that time and police were there to escort us to the stadium", coach Thomas Tuchel told a news conference after his team exited the tournament 6-3 on aggregate.

However, their second-leg preparation was also disrupted with Dortmund saying their bus was held for 20 minutes by local police.

And it took just three minutes of this second-leg encounter for Mbappe to pounce on a Roman Burki error at Stade Louis II to become the first player to score in his first four knockout-stage appearances. We're the team that has played the most in Europe.

True to the Italian tradition of defending an advantage, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon had little work to do until late in the game, as Massimiliano Allegri's side expertly absorbed Barcelona's high-paced passing attack that ultimately produced few good scoring opportunities.

"We played a very solid game, we were in control but we showed ambition. I know the situation is very hard but I remain optimistic". Leading the way is Radamel Falcao, the Colombian striker and team captain having scored his 27th of the season against Dortmund in a campaign that has relaunched his career after miserable loan spells at Manchester United and Chelsea.

Monaco then doubled their lead on 17 minutes following a flowing break when Thomas Lemar curled the ball into the Dortmund box from the left and Falcao dispatched a diving header into the bottom right corner.
