The German side will be monitoring the status of one of its players though after defender Marc Bartra suffered an injury as a result of the attack.

The club announced Tuesday afternoon following the incident that Bartra had suffered an injury and that he was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

UPDATE: Bartra underwent surgery Tuesday evening to repair his fractured wrist and remove debris from his arm after the explosions.

It was later reported by Eurosport that the 26-year-old’s injury was to his hand and that he is “Ok but in shock” following the events that led to Dortmund’s match being postponed.
