In a scary developing story out of Germany, a series of explosions just outside the bus carrying the Borussia Dortmund soccer team Tuesday has injured center back Marc Bartra.

According to Dortmund’s tweets, the team bus was outside its team hotel, on the way to a Champions League match against AS Monaco. The match has been delayed until Wednesday.

According to a police statement, “It is not yet possible to say exactly what the explosion was or exactly where something exploded.”

Dortmund confirmed Bartra was injured in this explosion.

The match was also postponed until Wednesday, which is secondary to the health and safety of everyone involved.
