Spanish defender Marc Bartra, 26, suffered injuries to an arm and hand, the team said.

The game was subsequently rescheduled for Wednesday evening, leaving many Monaco fans without a place to stay for the night.

Borussia Dortmund used their official Twitter account to help find beds for those in need, using the hashtag #bedforawayfans.

In a show of true sportsmanship, Dortmund supporters answered the call, opening their doors to those in need of last minute housing.

Borussia Dortmund President Reinhard Rauball hailed the compassion shown by Monaco fans following the attack and praised the effort to take in stranded supporters in an interview with German public broadcaster ZDF on Wednesday morning.

'Dortmund fans were ready to provide shelter to the Monaco fans that didn't have a place to stay or the financial means,' Rauball told ZDF. 'I have a personal example, a friend of mine sent me a text straight away saying he would like to provide shelter for 10 Monaco fans.'

One Dortmund fan, Stefan Kilmer (@vespafoto), offered accommodation to five people in a post on Twitter.

He later shared a selfie from his home, where he was sitting down to dinner with Dortmund and Monaco supporters -- dressed in their respective team's jerseys. The tweet has been shared over 14,000 times.

Kilmer told CNN that four fans from Paris stayed with him, and they have all become fast friends.

'It was great. We had a nice evening together, cooking and talking. And today we have had a good game day together,' Kilmer said. 'When I go to Paris I will contact them, and maybe we will go to a football match.'

Kilmer became an overnight celebrity for his hospitality, with German justice minister Heiko Maas, professional Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas Fern√°ndez, and the AS Monaco team itself singing his praises. But Kilmer wasn't the only Dortmund fan to come to the aid of Monagasques.

When Julien Bestron, a Monaco fan from Nancy, France, tweeted in English and German looking for accommodation for three fans, Philip Kruse (@Ras_Afro on Twitter) came to the rescue.

'He welcomed us very nicely, offered beers and we talked with him until 12.30 and went to bed,' Bestron told CNN via Twitter.

'We learned a lot about him and his life and Germany, too bad for him that he is an Arsenal fan,' he quipped.

Bestron said that they took the photo with French former soccer player Ludovic Giuly's jersey this morning to mark the moment.

'It was really surprising for us to have somebody welcoming us like that,' Bestron said. '@Ras_Afro was a great host and it was a great experience! We can't wait to watch the game noooooooow!!!

Speaking with CNN on Wednesday morning, senior UEFA official Giorgio Marchetti thanked Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco for their cooperation.

'We understand that the club, Dortmund in particular, knows that it has been a shock,' Marchetti said. 'But they've agreed nonetheless to play this match.'

'It was really surprising for us to have somebody welcoming us like that,' Bestron said. '@Ras_Afro was a great host and it was a great experience! We can't wait to watch the game noooooooow!!!
