Ramos was a 67th minute substitute Tuesday in Dortmund's 2-0 DFB Pokal win over Dynamo Dresden.

Ramos got some rare game time after replacing Shinji Kagawa in the second half. The striker is on a scoring drought that stretches back to September and would have been desperate to net in a competition in which he has one goal to his name this season. Ramos was unsuccessful however, he looked lively but could have done better when he found himself one-on-one with Dresden's goalkeeper Patrick Wiegers.

Ramos came on as an 84th minute substitute Friday in Dortmund's 4-2 win over Mainz.

Jurgen Klopp hinted that Ramos may get some game time against Mainz but it was probably not as much as the Colombian striker would have hoped for. He replaced Marco Reus with just six minutes remaining and didn't have time to produce a shot. Both Ramos and fellow summer signing Ciro Immobile have been increasingly frozen out at Dortmund and their future prospects look grim with their exclusion correlating with an upturn in the team's fortunes.

Ramos may feature in the squad against Mainz after being left out of the team that travelled to Freiburg on Saturday, reports.

Ramos has struggled for opportunities recently and has not scored since September. However coach Jurgen Klopp said [leaving him out of the last game] “was not a decision against Adrian. I just decided that I only need one striker on the bench. It could be a whole different story on Friday.”

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.
