A week after three bombs exploded near its bus before the first leg at home, Borussia Dortmund's bus in Monaco on Wednesday was delayed by police for 20 minutes, putting the team in what Thomas Tuchel  said was an "awkward mindset" before a 3-1 loss to Monaco that eliminated Dortmund from the UEFA Champions League.  "Everyone went quiet and it felt not so good," said Tuchel. The kickoff was delayed by five minutes.

"The police did not drive, police were everywhere around the bus, the street was free," Tuchel said. "We did not move one centimeter. If you don't want to have a situation like last week you don't want this situation -- the same team in the bus. We stood there for 16, 17 minutes. I had the feeling we were focused and full of joy and happiness to play this game. Then suddenly there were awkward mindsets going around."
