Lokomotiv Moscow vs. Juventus - Football Match Report

Juventus winger Douglas Costa scored a truly magnificent individual effort during Wednesday night's group stage clash against Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Bianconeri were ahead after just three minutes when Aaron Ramsey nudged the ball over the line after goalkeeper Guilherme had spilled Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick back towards his goal.

Juve are the fifth team to reach 300 goals in the competition, joining Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United in an elite club.

Costa played a silky one-two with striker Gonzalo Higuain after gliding past three Moscow players, and slotted through the goalkeeper's legs to make it 2-1.

However, what was Ransey's goal at the end, could have been Cristiano Ronaldo's.

Elon Musk announce launch date of Tesla Cybertruck
According to The Verge , the truck will seat six, offer between 400 to 500 miles of range and start at around $50,000. A Wednesday tweet from Elon Musk revealed that Tesla plans to unveil its electric truck later this month.

"He was annoyed because he wasn't well [physically]", Sarri said about Ronaldo's reaction to the substitution.

The Portuguese forward forced Guilherme into a terrific save from a fierce shot as Juve pushed forward, while Leonardo Bonucci had to be sharp to clear Joao Mario's shot off the line at the other end, as the hosts threatened to snatch the victor against the run of play.

What does it mean?

Sarri surprisingly replaced Ronaldo with Paulo Dybala in the 78th minute but the move paid off as Juventus took all the points thanks to an inspired moment from Costa. It was his first goal of the season after a long absence with a muscle injury. Now if he can just stay fit.

Maurizio Sarri made seven changes to his side that won the Turin derby last weekend, handing Ramsey a first European start for the club, and the Juve boss was rewarded early on. He would break a tie he's now in with Lionel Messi and Raul, who have 33 each in that category.
