Ishak Belfodil ended his goal drought as Hoffenheim continue their winless run with a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg in Saturday’s German Bundesliga tie at Volkswagen Arena.

After seven games without a goal, the 26-year-old ended the drought but could not prevent Julian Nagelsmann’s men from extending their winless run to four games.

Belfodil opened the scoring only four minutes into the game with Benjamin Hubner providing the assist.

Bruno Labbadia’s men levelled after Ermin Bicakcic turned the ball into his own net in the 28th minute.

Daniel Ginczek restored the lead to the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena outfit three minutes later.

Andrej Kramaric then scored a 71st-minute effort to ensure that the visitors did not leave Volkswagen Arena empty-handed and claim their fourth league stalemate.
