Jardim: Monaco won't abandon attacking style in Champions League semis

Bongarts

Just a week after the German team's bus was attacked by explosives en route to the first leg in Dortmund, the kick-off for the return match was delayed by five minutes.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who had a spell on loan at Monaco in 2010/11 - is in form in the competition, having scored seven times in eight Champions League games this term.

KYLIAN MBAPPE has become the first player to score in all four of his first Champions League knock-out games.

"We'll try to be flat out in the Champions League and the league, but it's normal that we're more exhausted than teams who play less".

But as they try to turn the tie around in the Mediterranean principality, he added: "What happened last week has brought us together and made us even stronger". "If we had gone out in the quarterfinals (against Dortmund) we'd be fresh to prepare all the (other) games, but we're very ambitious and I don't want the mentality of the players to change".

Dortmund, runners-up in 2013, were ultimately outclassed by a vibrant young Monaco side but Tuchel is convinced the outcome would have been different without last week's attack.

Last week's first leg was postponed by 24 hours after a bomb attack on the Dortmund team bus en route to the game in Germany. "Tonight it worked out fine and we qualified for the semi-finals".

The squad was reportedly held up by 20 minutes outside team hotel by officers who apparently gave no reason. What we must avoid is losing the ball as easily as we did for Monaco's third goal in the first leg. "Everyone was prepared and in the bus, but we couldn't move for 16 or 17 minutes", Tuchel said.

"It's been an incredible season and we're a bunch of mates who manage to enjoy ourselves out on the pitch", Mbappe said.

"We played well in Dortmund in the second half despite the circumstances". Then we made too many mistakes in our passing and positioning.

"Our mindset must be the same as the first leg".

Both sets of fans united in a touching show of support beforehand, singing the famed football anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone" as they raised scarves together.

It was a frantic spell after Mbappe's opener, with Monaco's attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva and Dortmund's Nuri Sahin going close.
