Mbappe Stuns Dortmund Day After Bus Attack

Kylian Mbappe struck twice as Monaco claimed a
thrilling 3-2 win at Borussia Dortmund in
Wednesday’s rescheduled Champions League
quarter-final first leg to seize the advantage in the
tie. Monaco’s French forward Kylian Mbappe Lottin reacts after scoring during the UEFA Champions League 1st leg quarter-final football match BVB Borussia Dortmund v Monaco in Dortmund, western Germany on April 12, 2017. The match had been postponed after three explosions hit German football team Borussia Dortmund’s bus late on April 11, 2017 ahead of a Champions League home game. / AFP PHOTO Police ramped up security in the city as German
investigators detained an Islamist suspect over
three explosions that rocked Dortmund’s team bus
on Tuesday and left Spain international Marc
Bartra with a broken wrist. Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel had criticised the
decision to go-ahead with the game. Read: Dortmund-Monaco Match Postponed Until
Wednesday After Bus Explosion “We would have liked to have had more time to
work through it,” he said. “There are players who easily brushed it off, but
there are also players who really took it to heart.
They are more thoughtful.” Dortmund defiantly vowed not to “give in to
terror” after the harrowing events from 24 hours
earlier, but the home side struggled early and fell
behind on 19 minutes — although only after
Fabinho missed a rare penalty. Mbappe bundled in the opening goal from an
offside position before Sven Bender, filling in for
Bartra in defence, headed into his own net to
compound Dortmund’s problems. Ousmane Dembele pulled one back for Dortmund
on 57 minutes, but Mbappe fired in his second of
the game to leave Monaco as favourites to reach
the last four despite Shinji Kagawa’s late strike. Extra forces were deployed around team hotels
and their buses took designated safe routes to the
stadium. Dortmund players wore t-shirts bearing a message
of support for Bartra prior to kick-off, while
goalkeeper Roman Burki warmed up in the
defender’s number five jersey.
