Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel is confident his side will not be affected by last week's traumatic events when they meet Monaco in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

Last Tuesday in Dortmund, three explosions went off as BVB headed to the Westfalenstadion for their Champions League quarterfinal first leg against Monaco, leaving defender Marc Bartra needing hospital treatment following injuries to his wrist and arm after a window was shattered.

Tuchel complained his players had been "completely ignored" but, after a 3-1 Bundesliga win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, the 43-year-old said the incident was out of his side's system before the trip to the Stade Louis II.

"I had the feeling we were focused and full of joy and happiness to play this game".

Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe continued his meteoric ascent to the top of European football on Wednesday evening with another crucial Champions League goal against Borussia Dortmund. The night before, Dortmund's bus was bombed in an attack that we now know was quite serious. It was a must-win game for Barca since they had lost the first leg 3-0 but in the end Juve were able to scrap out a 0-0 draw in the second leg to book a place in the semis. "We want to go out and enjoy it but all four sides are capable of winning the competition", warned Jardim, whose team were visited by Prince Albert in the dressing room afterwards.

"We stayed there for 16 or 17 minutes and when we tried to find out why, they just said it was for security reasons".

The game everyone assumed was over in the first seconds actually was not decided until the final second ticked off the clock. The Raptors have lost the opening game in eight consecutive playoff series. "Now we've got to see what we're made of".

Leonardo Jardim insisted Monaco will stay true to their attacking philosophy after advancing to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Monaco joined Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the last four of Europe's premier cub competition.

Burki made a mistake for the second goal, and he admitted he should have done more to force Benjamin Mendy's effort away.

"At this level you can not set limits for your players".

As Dortmund kept pushing forward in numbers, Monaco was stretched down both flanks but, equally, Dortmund was increasingly exposed to slick counterattacking.

Falcao lofted a shot narrowly over after breaking down the right in the 65th and Mbappe had a low shot saved moments later from a similar position.
