Bundesliga wrap: Freiburg claim point in Bremen draw
Werder Bremen were held to a 2-2 draw at bottom-placed Freiburg while Cologne won 1-0 at Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga on Sunday.
Fifth-placed Werder Bremen, who have drawn their past three games, travelled to Freiburg expecting a victory but were matched by a determined home outfit.
Peruvian forward Claudio Pizarro handed the visitors a 29th minute lead but Cedric Makiadi produced a quick response for Freiburg to ensure both sides headed into half-time on level terms.
Pizarro netted his second for the afternoon - and 15th for the season - just three minutes into the second half to give Thomas Schaaf's men the upper hand.
But Freiburg were not done yet and levelled the match with 20 minutes to play thanks to Frenchman Jonathan Schmid's effort.
In the day's other match, Cologne won their first away match in the league since September with a 1-0 victory over Kaiserslautern.
The hosts had Polish midfielder Ariel Borysiuk sent off in the first half and Cologne made the numerical advantage count when Albanian substitute Odhise Roshi bagged the game's only goal with 18 minutes to play.
