Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland scored twice as his side drew 2-2 at Cologne in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The result left fifth-placed Dortmund losing ground in the hunt for a top-four finish as they have 43 points from 26 games, four less than Eintracht Frankfurt in fourth who celebrated a 5-2 home win over Union Berlin.
Cologne stayed 14th on 23 points, two above the relegation spots.

Haaland made headlines as he stormed off the pitch at the final whistle, chucking his shirt towards an opponent and going straight down the tunnel.
"You can see his disappointment because he wanted to leave the field as a winner," said coach Edin Terzic. "That is what distinguishes him, his will to win. He shows that to us every day and to you once or twice a week. We are very happy that he is with us. We will continue to help him so that he can help us."
Haaland gave Dortmund a third-minute lead with a sublime finish as he took a long Emre Can ball in his stride and held off Jorge Mere's challenge before he steered a low shot through the legs of goalkeeper Timo Horn.
Ondrej Duda levelled with a 35th-minute penalty after Noah Katterbach's shot hit Jude Bellingham in the arm and Ismail Jacobs then turned the tide as he capped a fast break with an unstoppable shot in the 65th.
Just when it seemed Cologne would complete the league double over Dortmund having beaten them 2-1 in the reverse fixture, Haaland popped up in front of goal to tap in a 90th-minute assist by Ansgar Knauff.
Dortmund goalkeeper Marwin Hitz was disappointed with the outcome as the visitors allowed Cologne to turn the match on its head after Haaland struck a superb third-minute opener.
"We started really well and scored a nice first goal but then we disappeared," said Hitz.
"We sat back and lost possession too many times so it was definitely not a good afternoon for us. It's inexplicable that we made so many mistakes as we really needed to win this game."
Left back Nico Shultz added: "We got too passive after taking the lead and we let Cologne back into the game. We needed to move the ball a lot better and we also weren't active enough defensively."
