Video: Dortmund Defender Marc Bartra Dedicates Stunning Strike to Barcelona Victims

Borussia Dortmund centre-back Marc Bartra scored a stunning strike in the Bundesliga this afternoon and dedicated it to the victims of the Barcelona terrorist attack.

Bartra is a graduate from Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy, spending seven years in the Spanish city before moving to Dortmund in 2016.

The Spain international was clearly affected by the tragic scenes in Catalonia this week, which left 13 people dead after a van mounted the pavement in the popular tourist district of Las Ramblas.

So, when Bartra scored a rare and sensational curled goal against Wolfsburg this afternoon, it gave the 26-year-old the opportunity to pay his respects to those who had been killed:

 

 

 

Highly-rated American youngster Christian Pulisic scored the opener, with Dortmund currently coasting in the second-half.

BVB will be desperate to improve on last season’s third place finish and with passionate characters like Bartra in the line-up, they might just do it.
