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 shooting. While putting Deadeye on him, he has 90 Finishing and he didn't often miss a goal. So don't be fooled by his base stat of 75. In addition to that his long shots are AMAZING!! Shot power is unreal, curve as well. Passing is solid, crossing more than good. His stamina is perfectly sufficient for 90 minutes, even in extra time he can perform as a gamechanger.
I don't care that much about the stats, after 15 games he scored 9 goals and assisted 7 in division 2 + a few squad battle games on legend.
His biggest con is his strenght, even with a chem style still bad. But if you play very skillfull like me, it isn't an issue.
All in all I can highly recommend him and I don't regret the costs of 475k.
