The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to what was an incredible performance from Juventus’ Brazilian livewire, Douglas Costa last night. Costa was a consistent threat to Real Madrid, putting crosses into the box and unsettling the back four on a night that almost went so wrong for Los Blancos.
Douglas Costa is currently on loan at Juventus from German giants, Bayern Munich and he’ll wish he was still with his parent club this morning as he’ll be reflecting on what could’ve been following last night. The Old Lady fell to a crushing 3-0 home defeat last Tuesday and looked as good as out of the Champions League without any sign of a comeback being on the cards, although at the Bernabeu things turned out very differently.
A Mario Mandzukic brace followed by Blaise Matuidi’s leveller put Juventus in the driving seat until Michael Oliver awarded Madrid a dubious 93rd-minute penalty and sent Gianluigi Buffon off for dissent in the aftermath. The decision, on reflection, was correct but Juve will feel hard done by when they look back at the game. Liverpool fans watching on, who have already secured their spot in Friday’s semi-final draw, were particularly impressed with the form of 27-year-old Brazilian as he played a huge role in making the impossible comeback look possible.
