Dortmund - Spain international Marc Bartra was injured in the explosion which hit the Borussia Dortmund team bus on Tuesday and which saw their Champions League game against Monaco called off, the club has confirmed.

The 26-year-old centre-back injured his hand and is being treated in hospital, said Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

The quarter-final first leg has been rescheduled for 18:45 local time on Wednesday.

According to previous reports Bartra underwent wrist surgery on Tuesday after being injured when the Borussia Dortmund team bus was rocked by a series of explosions that forced the postponement of their Champions League match against Monaco.
