Team-mate Julian Weigl added on the club website: "At the start of the match you could see the events were hanging over us". "Of course this has an effect and it was a bad experience for all of us".

"We were not attacked on the field by an opponent; we were attacked from inside the bus as men", Tuchel said in a post-match broadcast interview with former Norway worldwide Jan Aage Fjortoft. The second leg is being played next Wednesday in Monaco.

"It is hard for the Borussia players".

Authorities also searched the home of a second suspected Islamic extremist but prosecutors said Thursday there were no indications he was involved in the bus attack.

"The investigations have so far resulted in no evidence that the suspect had taken part in the attack", the prosecutor's office said in a statement.
