Douglas Costa Turns On Beast Mode By Taking Out Seven Players To Score Last Minute Winner

Douglas Costa Turns On Beast Mode By Taking Out Seven Players To Score Last Minute Winner

Juventus winger Douglas Costa scored a truly magnificent individual effort during Wednesday night's group stage clash against Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Brazilian, who was brought on as a second-half substitute for Sami Khedira, dribbled past several players in injury time to score a last minute winner, sending the Italian side into the Round of 16.

Costa played a silky one-two with striker Gonzalo Higuain after gliding past three Moscow players, and slotted through the goalkeeper's legs to make it 2-1.

Now this is how you qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.

It was a game full of entertaining moments, including the minute of madness that almost broke Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick duck.

Ronaldo, who has failed to score all 29 of his free-kick attempts for the Italian club since joining in 2018, looked set to open his account in the Group D clash when he struck from distance.

Moscow goalkeeper Guilherme Marinato spilled Ronaldo's initial shot and the ball was about to roll into the net when teammate Aaron Ramsey decided to tap in from a yard.

It was the Welsh midfielder's second goal for the club but perhaps a certain five-time Ballon d'Or winner will want clarification on the effort.

Ramsey, who became the first British player to score for Juventus in the Champions League as a result, immediately ran over to the free-kick taker after he knocked the ball into the back of the net.

He awkwardly put his hands in the air, pointed at Ronaldo and claimed it was the Portuguese international's goal.

It appeared Ronaldo thought the goal was his, judging by his celebration.

Moments later he showcased his disappointment at missing out on scoring his 14th goal of the season as Ramsey made it 1-0 to Juventus in the third minute.

Lokomotiv striker Aleksei Miranchuk equalised just nine minutes later to make it 1-1 to the home side but that goal from Douglas Costa in injury time sealed all three points for Maurizio Sarri's men.
