Douglas Costa - 90 - FUT Birthday
5.0
Despite 3* WF, D. Costa is a beast
By JogaTobino, 27-03-2019

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.

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...

incredible card

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 co...

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. ...
