Monaco offer Dortmund plaque as show of solidarity

Monaco offer Dortmund plaque as show of solidarity

Marco Reus could make his Champions League return when Borussia Dortmund travel to Monaco in the quarter-final second leg.

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.

The second-leg stalemate sealed a 3-0 win on aggregate and came six weeks after Barcelona's historic 6-1 thrashing of Paris Saint-Germain, when the home side became the first team to ever overturn a 4-0 loss in the competition.

The Ruhr side are trailing 2-3 from their first leg match.

Rising teenage star Kylian Mbappe and resurgent forward Radamel Falcao scored early goals as free-scoring Monaco beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 to reach the Champions League semifinals on Wednesday.

"We are all aware of what happened in Dortmund and we have it in mind".

Monaco then made the Germans' task all-but-impossible three minutes later - Falcao found space in front of Matthias Ginter and steered in Thomas Lemar's cross from the left with a diving header.

The Champions League match between Monaco and Borussia Dortmund will be broadcast on FS2.

AS Monaco are in scary form in the Champions League this season.

Monaco may not have been directly targeted in the attack but the events and subsequent postponement were still hard to deal with for Leonardo Jardim and his young side, who saw teenage prodigy Kylian Mbappe score twice in the first leg.

For Monaco, the result means they reach the last four for the first time since their run to the 2003-04 final and the youth, vibrancy and pace they possess in abundance mean's Leonardo Jardim's men will be a threat to Real Madrid, Juventus or Atletico Madrid.

"During the 90 minutes it was slightly easier for us than it was on Wednesday evening", Dortmund captain Marcel Schmelzer said. We play attacking football. "We are the team that has played the most games in Europe, so it's tough", added a coach who has been linked to Arsenal in the British media.

Monaco were without influential Brazilian midfielder Fabinho, who missed a penalty in the first leg, due to suspension, so Tiemoue Bakayoko and Joao Moutinho partnered one another in midfield. It is up to us to play as we have done since the beginning of the season. "I think Dortmund are stronger psychologically". We are ready for the game and focused.

The Dortmund travelling fans situated in a corner of the stadium responded with chants of "Monaco!".
