Sitting next to Bartra was goalkeeper Roman Burki who spoke to German newspaper Blick to recount the events:

"We left the hotel at 7:15 pm and went down the street," he said. "The bus turned to the main street, when there was a giant explosion. I was sitting in the back row next to Marc Bartra, who was hit by fragments."

"After the bang, we all ducked in the bus and those who could went on the ground. We did not know if more happened. The police were quick on the spot, they were safe. We're all shocked - nobody thought of a football match in the minute. "

The postponed match will now take place this evening though it is unlikely Bartra will play having undergone surgery for his hand injury. Police are investigating the incident but have no reason thus far to suspect it is terrorism related.
