Douglas Costa’s injury-time goal saw Juventus overcome a strong challenge from Lokomotiv Moscow to emerge 2-1 winners in the Champions League.

Maurizio Sarri’s decision to make seven changes to his line-up nearly backfired as Lokomotiv sought to delay Juventus’ qualifcation hopes of a Champions League last-16 spot on Wednesday night.

In fact, the Russians took just nine minutes to cancel out Aaron Ramsey’s opener at the RZD Arena through Aleksey Miranchuk.

It set-up a tough and challenging contest between the two teams, with neither one unable to break down the other.

Just as things seemed set for a draw, however, Douglas Costa teammed up with Gonzalo Higuain to score a stoppage-time winner for Juventus – much to the relief of Sarri and everyone in Turin.

Now, we’ll take a look at what went down in Moscow.
