The highly expected game between Monaco and Dortmund now only has hours to call. The first leg of this quarter-final ended with Monaco winning by 2-3 in Dortmund. Despite the intense match, other events happened to steal the spotlights.

Bomb attacks on the Dortmund-bus got off just before the match, which resulted in a postpone to the day after. Although both teams seemed to overcome the incident, Monaco pulled of in best ways, with wonderkid Kylian Mbappe scoring 2 goals, and an own goal by Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender.

Dortmund players Ousmane Dembele and Shinji Kagawa changed Monaco’s plans, and the game ended 2-3. This leaves Dortmund hungry for revenge, and they need extraordinary skills to do so. Monaco is by now Europes most scoring team, with incredible 90 goals in 32 Ligue 1 matches. On the other hand, Dortmund hasn’t lied idle, with stars as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marco Reus and Ousmane Dembele scoring tons of goals in Bundesliga and Champions League.

The clash between the two sides takes place tonight (Wednesday) 20.45 CET at Stade Louis II in Monaco
