Douglas Costa - 90 - FUT Birthday
5.0
incredible card
By rowany7, 25-03-2019

This guy is probably one of the most effective CAMs ive used are so far in a 4231. After having just sold CR7 i needed somebody to fill the goal void with zlatan.

He managed to score 36 goals in 40 games for me, the majority of which were in the weekend league helping me push into elite 3. The way this guy glides past defenders is incredible, because of his work rates and pace his runs in behind are so quick and he consistently makes runs throughout the whole game. however when you're not sprinting, i recommend using the special dribbling functions. (LB turns and LT+RT control) as his ball control is incredible and if you know how to dribble and skill in game properly he'll be able to get round defenders with no problems at all. Putting deadeye on this guy is perfect, his pace is basically maxed out as is his dribbling: deadeye puts his finishing up to 90 (his shooting has been incredible for me) and the quality of passes he makes are really good too especially his crosses into the box. However if you sprint way too much with this guy don't expect his stamina to be great in the 2nd half. IF i was to compare him to players i'd describe him as a mix of messi's dribbling, passing and shooting with mbappes pace.

pace pace pace

insane dribbling

insane shooting (especially post-patch finesses with deadeye)

incredible crossing

great through balls and passing in general (with deadeye)

His height is a benefit for this type of player build (low centre of gravity, fast and great dribbler)

lack of heading

stamina sometimes

3 star WF (not too much of an issue majority of the time though)

Excellent winger

Douglas Costa has been excellent for me.He is fast and so agile, which makes up for his lack of strength as he just wiggles past opponents.His finishing was not good enough, so I slapped a sniper chem style on him and that totally solved the issue.He is a left footed winger but uses the outside of his foot a lot to finish up his chances, his outside finesse shots are quite lethal.His composure is...

Douglas Costa RTTF...I'm speechless

This D. Costa is absolutely insane. At the beginning I wasn't enthusiast because as a left wing with a left foot his crosses and passes wasn't so good. Not worth at all for a +300k card. But when I switch him in game on the right side of the pitch... oh my God, absolutely amazing. Whit his left foot he can finesse from every angle without a problem. He is incredibly fast and with 97 pace outrun every single LB on the game. ...

Despite 3* WF, D. Costa is a beast

I packed this guy from David Villa SBC and for me he is an absolute beast. He does fit perfectly in my squad as a right CAM (in-game left CAM) beside Willian fbday, OTW Cancelo and Emre Can Carniball. Douglas Costa does play very similar to my 91 Maradona, but for me he is even more agile, way faster and does have a better dribbling as my baby Maradona. Therefore pace and dribbling are outstanding! Now let's come to his sho...
