Soccer-Monaco v Borussia kickoff delayed

MONACO, April 19 (Reuters) - The kickoff in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg between Monaco and Borussia Dortmund was delayed because of the German team’s late arrival at Louis-II stadium, UEFA said.

Last week’s first leg was postponed by 24 hours after the Dortmund team bus was attacked with explosives on its way to the stadium.

UEFA said the delay was caused by heavy traffic.

The game kicked off five minutes behind schedule at 2050 local time (1850GMT).

Monaco won the first leg 3-2. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ed Osmond)
