Ramos came on as a 46th minute but was largely ineffective Saturday as Dortmund lost 1-0 to Hertha Berlin.

Ramos returned to his former club for the first time since making his €11 million move to Dortmund in June. He replaced Sebastian Kehl after half-time with his new side trailing 1-0 but offered little in the way of attacking threat. He had one shot on goal and made two crosses but really struggled to create anything meaningful. The previously prolific Ramos is now looking for his first league goal since September.

Ramos worked tirelessly in attack but only managed one shot on goal as Dortmund beat Hoffenheim 1-0 Friday.

Having had a long barren run in front of goal in the Bundesliga, Ramos was keen to rectify the situation in his first league start since Oct. 25. He worked very hard and actually won more tackles than any other player on the field but ultimately could not find the net. He had two efforts frustratingly blocked but only completed one effort on goal as Ramos failed to score despite his work-rate.

Ramos came on as an early substitute on 38 minutes but failed to convert his chances Sunday as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Starting on the bench, Ramos was thrown on much earlier than expected following an injury to Lukasz Piszczek. He looked a threat throughout but a lack of composure meant that the forward's long barren run in front of goal continued. He was denied by Frankfurt goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald early in the second half and then later beat Wiedwald only to be scuppered by defender Anderson Bamba's headed clearance. The former Hertha Berlin man still seems a long way off from the deadly marksman that got 16 league goals last season.

Ramos came on as a 61st minute substitute but didn't manage to find the net as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Champions League Wednesday.

Ramos has had a hard time in front of goal lately and failed to score again despite making a decent half hour appearance from the bench. With his team 1-0 down, Ramos was part of a rejuvenated Dortmund attack after half-time and would have got on the scoresheet in injury time had it not been for the legs of Arsenal goalkeeper Damián Martínez. It was an encouraging display by Ramos who hasn't been in first team contention much recently.

Ramos was limited to a substitute appearance on 87 minutes Saturday as Dortmund drew 2-2 with SC Paderborn.

Ramos hasn't scored in the Bundesliga since Sept. 13 and his opportunities to halt that unenviable streak are dwindling. However having scored Colombia's only goal against Slovenia midweek, Ramos may well have believed he was at the start of a scoring run. Not so, he was only thrown on as a late impact substitute against Paderborn with Jurgen Klopp desperate to grab a goal once the opposition made it 2-2. It was not enough time for Ramos who didn't have the chance to shoot on goal.

Ramos came on after 81 minutes but was ineffective as Dortmund lost 2-1 to Bayern Munch Saturday.

Ramos hasn't scored in the league since September 13 and the wait for a goal goes on after a brief ineffective striking display against Bayern Munich. Ramos replaced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to liven the attack after Bayern had equalized but unfortunately his time on the field was dominated by offensive play from the opponents. The Colombian only managed to touch the ball eight times and had no efforts on goal.

Ramos was ineffective in attack as Dortmund were shut-out by Hannover Saturday in a 1-0 defeat.

Ramos was given a start after his Champions League substitute goal against Galatasaray midweek but failed to have an impact in the Bundesliga. Ciro Immobile may have his critics but he certainly creates a focal point in the Dortmund attack, something which the slight frame of striking rival Ramos did not. He struggled for possession and when he did finally get an opportunity near the end of the game he headed wide. Ramos is likely to have a lot more joy Tuesday when Dortmund visit 2.Bundesliga side St. Pauli in the Pokal Cup.

Ramos came off the bench and scored after a minute as Dortmund beat Galatasaray 4-0 Wednesday in the Champions League.

Ramos seems to be making a bit of a reputation for himself as a super-sub. When he has started this season his performances have largely been inept but his impact coming off the bench has been sizeable In the last Champions League encounter against Anderlecht Ramos scored two second half goals as a substitute and this time around Ramos clinically finished his first opportunity. The Colombian will probably remain on the bench Saturday against Hannover but don't rule out him scoring.
