In the picture posted by the former Barcelona defender, Bartra's his right hand was entirely covered in cast while the left wrist was partially covered.

However, Bartra seemed to be in high spirits and posted a message along with the picture. Bartra Instagram post read: "Hello everybody! As you can see I am doing much better. Thank you everybody for all your support and your messages! All my strength to my team mates, supporters and fans and to @bvb09."

Three explosions occurred as the team made their way to the stadium with the former Barcelona star the only person injured in the incident.

Dortmund's Champions League clash was postponed to Wednesday night after the shocking attack.

Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke says the rescheduled match on Wednesday must take place as a sign against terrorism.

"We will play not only for ourselves today. We will play for everyone... we want to show that terror and hate can never determine our actions," said the Dortmund boss.

"And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win!"
