- End of 2nd Half
FULL-TIME: Monaco bravely hold on to claim a crucial 3-2 victory over Dortmund.
Only 24 hours after a such a deeply disturbing event, both teams served up a classic 90 minutes of football. Dortmund and Monaco, you should be very, very proud.
We're into the first of three additional minutes...
MISS! Oh my, Dortmund should be level! Aubameyang gets on the end of Dembele's cross but somehow puts it over the bar from a few yards out!
Monaco have a goal-kick and Subasic will take an age with this one... Thomas Tuchel looks on anxiously from the touchline.
There was always going to be goals in this contest but have Dortmund got one more in their locker? There's two minutes of normal time remaining...
Dortmund are pushing for an equaliser again as Dembele delivers a cross into the area but Glik, who has enjoyed a tremendous game, is there to clear for a corner which comes to nothing.
- OffRadamel FalcaoAS Monaco
- OnValère GermainAS Monaco
MONACO SUB: The visitors make a change immediately after Dortmund's goal as Valere Germain replaces Falcao.
- GoalShinji KagawaBorussia Dortmund
GOAL - Dortmund have a lifeline!
It's a fantastic goal from Kagawa who is allowed to turn inside the Monaco penalty area and finds the corner of the net to send the home supporters wild.
- Yellow cardFabinhoAS Monaco
YELLOW CARD: Fabinho is booked for a foul on Dembele.
- GoalKylian MbappéAS Monaco
GOAL! Mbappe scores his second of the game as Monaco grab their THIRD away goal of the evening.
The French forward nips in to intercept Piszczek's pass back to Sokratis, he still has plenty to do but shows his quality as he smashes the ball past Bürki from all of 20 yards.
A slightly ambitious effort from Pulisic on the edge of the Monaco box is straight forward for Subasic.
HUGE CHANCE! Falcao spurns a wonderful opportunity to seal the game for Monaco as the Colombian rounds the goalkeeper but sends the ball over the bar. Will this come back to haunt the visitors?
Sokratis, who is already on a yellow card, is extremely fortunate not to be shown his marching orders as he lunges in on Mbappe but the referee keeps his cards in his pockets on this occasion.
Dembele twists and turns before shooting but it's deflected out for a corner. Guerreiro delivers another decent cross but Glik rises highest to head clear. Monaco survive, for now.
But Dortmund come forward once more. It's only a matter of time before they celebrate an equaliser, surely?
It's a good ball in from Guerreiro but the Monaco defence is equal to it and clear the danger.
- Yellow cardNabil DirarAS Monaco
YELLOW CARD: Dirar gets the wrong side of Kagawa, he hauls his opponent down and receives a booking for his troubles. Dortmund have a free-kick right on the edge of the visitors' penalty area now.
- OffBernardo SilvaAS Monaco
- OnNabil DirarAS Monaco
MONACO SUB: Nabil Dirar takes the place of Silva for the remaining 25 minutes.
Dortmund have had 71% of possession in the second-half. Is it any wonder Monaco are preparing their first change of the match...
Monaco can't get near the ball at the moment.
Silva hesitates with his clearance, Guerreiro nips in and delivers a wonderful pass into the Monaco six-yard area but none of his team mates can get on to the end of it.
There's a fantastic atmosphere within Signal Induna Park now and the home supporters can sense a special night could be upon them.
Dortmund continue to pile on the pressure as they win a free-kick in a wide area. Pulisic steps up to deliver... but sends it straight into the arms of Subasic and Monaco can catch a breather.
- GoalOusmane DembéléBorussia Dortmund
GOAL - Dortmund are right back in this one and it's been coming.
Guerreiro fizzes a cross to the penalty area, Aubameyang's outrageous back heel picks out Kagawa who squares the ball for Dembele and the Dortmund forward is left with an empty net to tap into.
Dembele is beginning to prove a handful for the Monaco defence as he gets away down the channel, forcing a corner.
Dortmund's pressure at the start of the second period is relentless as Pulisic comes forward once more, he skips past Raggi before finding Dembele but the striker's shot is blocked by Jemerson.
Great defending from Glik as he makes a crucial block to intercept Pulisic's cross into the penalty area. Aubameyang had taken up a great area.
Monaco are able to deal with Guerreiro's corner delivery quite easily but the hosts come forward once more and they're playing with real conviction now.
Much better from the hosts as Sahin delivers a pass across the face of goal but Fabinho does brilliantly to clear on the stretch. A corner to follow...
CLOSE! Dembele steps up to take the free-kick... he curls it over the wall but just over the bar.
- Yellow cardJemersonAS Monaco
Dortmund have a wonderful opportunity to find a way back into the game as Kagawa goes down on the edge of the penalty area under the challenge of Jemerson who is booked in the process.
We go again.
- OffSven BenderBorussia Dortmund
- OnNuri SahinBorussia Dortmund
DOUBLE DORTMUND SUB: Bender is replaced by Nuri Şahi and Christian Pulisic takes the place of Schmelze.
Monaco take a two-goal advantage into the half-time interval but in truth the Ligue 1 side could be completely out of sight.
The visitors made the breakthrough when Mbappe scored after 19 minutes, shortly after Fabinho had missed a penalty and 10 minutes before the half-time whistle Bender scored a calamitous own goal to extend Monaco's advantage.
- End of 1st Half
HALF-TIME: Dortmund 0-2 Monaco.
TWO minutes of added time to be played at the end of the first-half.
Dembele finds space on the right flank but his cross is too close to the Monaco goalkeeper Subasic who makes a rather unconvincing punch but it does the job.
The hosts win a corner which Dembele takes but it's too deep and Monaco can regroup.
Dortmund will now have to throw caution to the wind as they chase the game and that should make for an intriguing second-half as we're now all aware of Monaco's pace on the break.
- Yellow cardMatthias GinterBorussia Dortmund
YELLOW CARD: Ginter goes into the book for a foul on Lemar. The referee had played an advantage but Silva is unable to capitalise as he slices his effort well wide of the goal.
Papastathopoulos makes a crucial sliding challenge to take the ball away from Mbappe as Monaco push for a third goal.
It was a wonderful cross from Raggi and Falcao would likely have scored anyway.
- Own-goalSven BenderBorussia Dortmund
GOAL - Monaco extend their lead!
It's a calamitous own goal from Bender who heads the ball into his own net from Raggi's cross. Dortmund have a mountain to climb now.
OFFSIDE: A let off for Monaco as Piszczek's shot from just outside the penalty area takes a wicked deflection and falls kindly for Dembele who would score only for the lineman's flag.
That was better from Dortmund, though. Thomas Tuchel's side have been too ponderous thus far and guilty of too many square passes.
GLORIOUS CHANCE MISSED! Ginter turns his marker easily before picking out Kagawa who really ought to level the scores but he inexplicably screws his shot wide from a few yards out.
Monaco win a free-kick in a wide area, the delivery is sent to the back post where Toure takes up a good position but the full-back just can't get onto the end of the cross.
So far so good from Leonardo Jardim's side. The Ligue 1 side have been so strong and organised at the back and as we seen in Manchester, they're deadly on the break.
Monaco feel they should have another corner as Glik's headed effort goes behind the goal, but the visitors believe it took a deflection. They really aren't pleased when the referee points for a goal-kick.
Mbappe continues to cause Dortmund all kinds of problems as he dances into the home side's penalty area but Piszczek does well to get a toe in and concede the corner.
Well, we all expected an enthralling game and the teams certainly haven't disappointed thus far!
- GoalKylian MbappéAS Monaco
GOAL - Monaco are ahead!
Moments after missing a penalty, the visitors take the lead and it's a wonderful goal on the counter attack! Silva picks out Lemar in an acre of space, his cross/shot finds Mbappe who is left with a simple tap-in at the back post.
Ginter delivers a cross into the heart of the Monaco penalty area but Toure does brilliantly to head clear.
PENALTY MISSED! Fabinho steps up... and sends the ball wide of the Dortmund goal. It's a very poor effort but has justice been served? It looked like a harsh decision to award the spot-kick in the first place!
- Yellow cardSokratis PapastathopoulosBorussia Dortmund
PENALTY TO MONACO! Papastathopoulos hauls down Mbappe who was through on goal and the referee Daniele Orsato points to the spot! Yellow card to the Dortmund defender as well.
HALF-CHANCE! Monaco's full-back Toure is allowed too much space on the channel and he swings in a cross for Lemar but the youngster can't keep his header down.
Gilk, who is back from suspension, and his centre-back partner Jemerson are going to have a difficult job keeping Aubameyang quiet this evening.
JUST OVER! Aubameyang spins away from Jemerson to run on to a delightful through ball from Piszczek but the Gabon international can't keep his effort down as the ball flashes over the crossbar.
Monaco are holding a neat and organised shape at the back, and Dortmund are having a lot of trouble finding a way through at the moment.
This is the fourteenth time Dortmund have appeared in a European quarter-final.
Kagawa tries to release Aubameyang behind the Monaco defence as the hosts launch their first meaningful attack but Glik is alert to read the danger and makes a sliding challenge to divert the ball back to his goalkeeper.
Dortmund are passing the ball around very comfortably in the opening stages. I don't believe the visitors have had a touch just yet.
Only one French team has beaten Dortmund on their own soil in European competition (D3 L5), it was Marseille in December 2011 (3-2).
- 1st Half
KICK-OFF: Dortmund, in their traditional yellow and black kits, get us underway.
Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel told Sky Germany before tonight's game: "Everybody is dealing with this differently. I’m doing pretty fine, but we all have the right to deal with this differently.
“We would’ve wished for more time to reflect on this. We felt quite helpless when the decision was made in Switzerland (by UEFA).
“We’ve been left feeling a bit helpless by the decision. But professionals find solutions to problems. We are strong enough.
“What happened yesterday happened to us as people."
Remarkable scenes in Dortmund as both sets of supporters join in with a rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone.
FIVE MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF: A reminder of tonight's starting line-ups...
Dortmund: Bürki, Bender, Dembélé, Guerreiro, Aubameyang, Kagawa, Sokratis, Piszczek, Ginter, Schmelzer, Weigl.
Monaco: Subasic, Glik, Jemerson, Raggi, Toure, Fabinho, Moutinho, Silva, Lemar, Mbappe, Falcao.
TEN MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF: Goals, goals, goals. That's what we're all expecting tonight, isn't it? And any wonder - Dortmund broke the record for goals scored in a single Champions League group stage with their tally of 21 while Monaco have netted a remarkable 88 times this season. My prediction? 2-2.
DID YOU KNOW? This is the first competitive encounter between Dortmund and Monaco.
Monaco are currently three points above champions Paris St Germain in Ligue 1 and have scored more goals than anyone in Europe’s top five leagues this season! Leonardo Jardim's team also became the first side ever to advance through a knockout tie in the competition, having conceded a whopping six goals in the round-of-16 legs against Manchester City who they eventually beat on away goals.

Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund: "Monaco play at a very high tempo and, in addition to individual talent, they have a very strong team ethic.
"I think it's safe to say we won't have two 0-0 draws; both teams are too interested in scoring and pushing themselves to the limit."
Having gone unbeaten at home in 2016 and winning six of their seven home matches this calendar year, it is safe to say Dortmund hold a formidable home record. However, Thomas Tuchel's side is still reeling after being thrashed by Bayern Munich at the weekend and one has to wonder what that defeat may have done for the players' confidence.
Meanwhile the Ligue 1 leaders are severely depleted as they will have to do without key players Djibril Sidibe, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Radamel Falcao missed out in his side’s second-leg clash with Manchester City but the Colombian returns here to lead the attack and will hope to continue his rich scoring form of 25 goals in 33 matches.
As well as Marc Bartra, Dortmund are also missing creative midfielder Marco Reus. That is a blow but Thomas Tuchel's side have been boosted by the return of Julian Weigl, Shinji Kagawa and Lukasz Piszczek who all feature from the start. Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele partners Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who has scored seven goals in the competition this season - in attack.
And here's Monaco's starting line-up...
Subasic, Glik, Jemerson, Raggi, Toure, Fabinho, Moutinho, Silva, Lemar, Mbappe, Falcao. Subs: De Sanctis, Jorge, Diallo, N'Doram, Dirar, Germain, Cardona.
We're only 50 minutes from kick-off so let's switch our focus to the football and here's how Dortmund are lining up this evening...
Dortmund: Bürki, Bender, Dembélé, Guerreiro, Aubameyang, Kagawa, Sokratis, Piszczek, Ginter, Schmelzer, Weigl. Subs: Weidenfeller, Sahin, Mor, Pulisic, Merino, Passlack.
If we have learnt anything from this truly disturbing experience, it is that Dortmund and Monaco truly have some special supporters. Both clubs should be so proud.
Good evening and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the rearranged Champions League quarter final first-leg tie between Dortmund and Monaco.
Playing this match only 24 hours after three explosive devices went off by the Dortmund team bus isn't ideal but due to the tight schedule of both clubs, BVB chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said tonight was the only option. And so we continue... Kick-off, 17:45 UK time.
And, sadly, on that note we will call it a night and hope you can join us for our live text commentary tomorrow evening.
The game will now be played on Wednesday at 6:45pm local time, 5:45pm UK time.
German police have confirmed there were three explosions close to the Dortmund team bus.
OFFICIAL: "The game #bvbasm was just being cancelled. New appointment: Wednesday, 12.04. 18:45. Tickets remain valid. #bvbasm"
Total respect from the travelling fans.
Spanish newspapers report that Dortmund defender Marc Bartra had been hospitalised following an incident. Initial reports said Bartra was "okay but in shock”, according to Barcelona-based paper Sport.
"We are in close coordination with the @polizei_nrw_do, the @FW_Dortmund and the @UEFA. #bvbasm".
"Decision about a possible game cancellation/new appointment at 20:30. #bvbasm"
"Bomb explosion on the team bus at the team hotel. Player in security. No danger in the and at the stadium. More information to follow. #bvbasm"
"#Explosion #Dortmund Please wait on official information + refrain from rumors and speculation. Thus they strongly support us."
Dortmund's official Twitter account has just posted the following message: "There was an incident on departure of our bus. One person was injured. More information will follow."
Obviously this sounds very concerning and we'll update you further when we can.
You want goals? You should have goals. Only Barcelona (26) have scored more than Dortmund (25) in this season's Champions League while Monaco have hit 88 goals in just 31 league matches to climb to the summit of the French top flight.
Good evening. Tonight sees two of Europe's most attacking sides go head to head in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final - Dortmund versus Monaco. Sounds enthralling, doesn't it? Follow us for LIVE text commentary.
