Alfredo Morales and Ingolstadt remained in the top half of the Bundesliga standings as they shared the points with FC Koln.
Koln 1 - 1 Ingolstadt
The newly promoted side continued its unbeaten record away from home as they earned a well-deserved tie at the Rhein Energie Stadion on Friday.
Morales took his role once again in the midfield for Ingolstadt and played the entire 90 minutes.
The visitors had the best chance to open the scoring early in the first half as Markus Suttner's shot went just narrowly wide of the goal. Sutnner would have another chance several minutes later, but his next effort was parried away by Koln goalkeeper Tim Horn.
The home side would open the scoring in the tenth minute when Anthony Modeste got his head on a crossed ball from Marcel Risse to give his team the lead.
However, the visitors were not deterred as they leveled the score midway through the first half when Marvin Matip headed in his own goal from teammate Pascal Gross' cross.
The second half would see Koln push for the game winner, with their best chance coming in the late stages of the game through Japanese international Yuya Osaka. His effort from point-blank range was parried away by Ingolstadt goalkeeper Ramazan Ozcan.
Ingolstadt now sit in eighth place in the standings on 11 points.
