“According to current knowledge the windows of the bus (whole or partial) were shattered and one person was injured. It is not yet possible to say exactly what the explosion was or exactly where something exploded.”

Though it is believed that there were no injuries a couple of reports suggested that Spanish star Marc Bartra was hit by a shattered window and had to be rushed to the hospital.

The official twitter handle of the German outfit tweeted:

“At our bus departure, an incident has occurred. One person was injured. More information to follow,” it read.

A later tweet read: “Bomb explosion on the team bus at the team hotel. Players in security. No danger at the stadium. More information to follow.”

In early reports from German newspaper Bild, an explosive was tied on the street in front of the bus which exploded when it was full with the players.

However, the police in Germany are yet to release an official press statement.

And it is reported now that the game has been postponed for tomorrow along with the Real Madrid v Bayern Munich Atletico Madrid v Leicester games.
