If it was a serious explosion there is no way they would be in any state to play a game, Bartra felt the effect of it. They'd be hammered. If it is as jacob reports, then yeah, probably will be fine playing it tomorrow.

Can't see them deciding to go ahead tomorrow so quickly if someone has genuinely tried to blow up the team coach, to be honest.

Word is that it has been postponed until tomorrow. I can't imagine the players will be in the right state of mind to play so soon to the explosion, at the moment it appears as though there's been an attempt on their lives. How are you supposed to concentrate a day after that?
When would you plan the game if you were UEFA? It's all well and good to complain about this decision but you also have to think about thousands of fans who spent a lot of money to be in Dortmund tonight. What should we tell them? Tough shit? Playing this game tomorrow makes a lot of sense from an organizational point of view as well. The return game is next week after all.

Surely they won't comeback again against a strong Juve side?

Depends how severe the incident turns out to be. I don't think an organisation would mind refunding the tickets if it turned out to be a genuine terrorist attack targeted at Dortmund's players (and staff). It should take precedence over a football tournament. They could play at a neutral venue if needs be. It certainly was the correct call to not play the game tonight, at the very least. Have to feel for the Dortmund players, they've just been shocked and will be at a huge disadvantage tomorrow mentally.

Nice to see Barcelona getting shafted in Europe, again. Let's hope it sticks this time. :)

Put 20 quid on Juve tonight. Just wish I'd put the rest on that I had in the account as I was confident this would happen.

Great from Juventus. I would like to see them advancing but after the PSG turnaround (and how Barcelona tends to receive some doubtful help in these kinds of situation) I won't elevate my hopes.

Dortmund two behind, both goals against the run of play. If they dont turn it around before the away leg it will be impossible to know for certain how much yesterday's incident will have effected things.

Dortmund pull one back. Hopefully it will give them a boost, would love to see them win this. Or avoid losing at least

both goals for Monaco were irregular. First one offside and the second a foul

Dortmund pull another back. Great game this. If they can go into the second leg all square, I suspect they won't be too disappointed under the circumstances.

Shame but they still have a decent chance only trailing by one.

Leicester haven't started the game like a team that will win.

It is nice to see Leiceater playing in white shorts.

Sounds a bit strange as a standalone comment but, you know what I mean.

But you're all losing sight of the main thing. Just how pimp is Shakespeares water bottle?

EDIT - Bullshit decision. Outside, definitely.

Well the ref ruined this tie for us the last time we were in Europe against Atletico. Good thing we have those blokes behind the goal to help him out.

Stupid challenge from Albrighton, he gave the ref a decision to make (which he duly fucked up but still stupid from Albrighton).
