As a result of the incident, Borussia defender and Spanish international Marc Bartra was injured and taken to a hospital. The game was to be held on Tuesday in Dortmund and start at 20:45 local time (21:45 Moscow time). A trio of blasts shattered bus windows but it is not immediately clear whether the broken glass caused Bartra's injuries.
Fans are not pleased the match has been cancelled.
