The incident happened a week after three bombs exploded close to the bus ahead of the first leg in Dortmund.

The second leg, scheduled for 19:45 BST, was delayed by five minutes.

Uefa said the kick-off had been moved back “due to late team arrival”.

Dortmund, on their official Twitter account, said police stopped their coach to “for about 20 minutes” in the principality.
