Borussia Dortmund’s team bus was damaged and a player was injured following three explosions near the vehicle while it was on its way to Tuesday’s Champions League game at home to AS Monaco, police said.

The match, a quarter-final first leg, was called off and rescheduled for Wednesday.

Mass-selling German newspaper Bild reported in its online edition that explosive devices were placed in a bush by the road along which the bus was travelling.

“The explosive devices were placed outside the bus. Several windows were broken,” police spokesman Gunnar Wortmann was quoted as saying.

In a statement, Dortmund police said earlier that they could not say “exactly what the explosion was or exactly where something exploded”.
