End of 2nd Half
FULL-TIME!
IT'S ALL OVER
Borussia Dortmund are held to a 1-1 draw at Koln to damage the visitors' slim Bundesliga title hopes.
Dortmund needed a victory to close the gap to league leaders Bayern Munich to four points, but they could not find a winner against a hard working Koln side and remain in second and six points behind the Bundesliga champions.

STALEMATE

A PAUSE IN PLAY
The whole match has had to stop while Bellingham gets some new boots on.

BELLINGHAM'S BOOTS HAVE RIPPED!
His right boot has come off after Ozcan clips his heels and shows it to the fourth official before flinging it to the ground. His boots have ripped and he has to wait to get some new ones now.

BRIGHT START FROM DORTMUND
The visitors are committing more men forward in search of a goal. Koln are holding firm, though, and are making this a physical contest.
