After an exceptional performance against Ajax, Douglas Costa seems to have sustained yet another injury, this time in his calf. According to Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, he will not be available for the away game in Ferrara against SPAL, on Saturday.
Costa surprised with his agility, speed, and freshness that he brought in the Juventus game on Wednesday, proving to be a secret weapon for the Turin-based Champions League dreamers. His elastico against right-back Joël Veltman sent the internet in a frenzy, reminding fans of a gone era of football, when Brazilian heroes Ronaldinho and Ronaldo would use the move to freeze up any defensive efforts.
No update has been given yet for when Costa will be ready, leaving open the option for him to play on the return, home leg against Ajax on Tuesday.
