European soccer's governing body insisted that Borussia Dortmund agreed to the rapid rescheduling of its Champions League quarterfinal after the German club complained about being forced to play a day after its bus was targeted by bombs.

But UEFA said Dortmund was satisfied with playing the first leg against Monaco just 24 hours after three devices packed with metal pins detonated close to the team bus.

At the time, the bus was on its way to the first leg of Borussia Dortmund's 2016–17 UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Monaco at the Signal Iduna Park; the match was rescheduled for the following day.

The German police and state lawyers are treating it as attempted murder and a planned attack on Borussia Dortmund.

The second leg is being played next Wednesday in Monaco.

"We were not attacked on the field by an opponent; we were attacked from inside the bus as men," Tuchel added in a broadcast interview with former Norway international Jan Aage Fjortoft. "The team wanted so badly a bit of time to deal with it so we were in our best shape because the dream is to go to the semifinals in Europe.

“That is football,” wrote AS Monaco in German, along with a picture of black-and-yellow jerseys sharing snacks with the red and white ones.

Borussia Dortmund thanked their fans on Wednesday morning on Twitter for their hospitality.

The game has been postponed until Wednesday at 6.45pm.

Fans were told their tickets for Tuesday would still be valid on Wednesday, leaving visiting Monaco fans in need of accommodation over night.

"The decision to play the match today at 18.45 (local time) was made last night at BVB stadium in cooperation and complete agreement with clubs and authorities," UEFA communications director Pedro Pinto told The Associated Press.
