FC Köln coach Steffen Baumgart praised his players' mentality after watching his side bounce back from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

"In the first half, we were inviting Leverkusen on. That's not the first time we've made it too easy for our opponent. That annoyed me," Baumgart told reporters after the game.

"The fact that the boys came back from 2-0 down showed what they're made of. The second half was good. The point was deserved on that basis. At the end, there was even more there to be hand. But that might have been too much."

Baumgart and Köln sit eighth in the Bundesliga table.
