      The Brazilian winger is enjoying life with the Bianconeri and ready for a big week

      As his Bianconero season comes to a climax, Douglas Costa has proven to be a more and more important cog in Massimiliano Allegri's machine providing game-changing speed down the wing and an ability to wriggle past any defender. 

      Today he spoke to the Sky Sports and Mediaset microphones about his Juventus journey. 

      "Yesterday was a great evening because we reached our goal which was the final and managed to stay focused throughout the match," said the Brazilian. "I feel good having grown tactically and tecnichally. I'm improving with the team and the time I set for myself in Italian football which has been something new to me."

      LAZIO AND TOTTENHAM

      Having cleared the Coppa Italia hurdle, the focus shifts to a massive doubleheader against Lazio in Serie A and Tottenham in the Champions League.

      "Lazio are a very good team with their tactical movement and have quality players like Immobile, Lucas Leiva and Felipe Anderson who can be difference-makers. I think if we stay focused though, we can play our game," said Costa. "Tottenham play very well with the ball and it will be a great challenge against a team with very strong players. However, we must maintain a positive mentality."

      LA JOYA'S RETURN

      A roar went up in Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night when Paulo Dybala made his return to the home field and Douglas is happy he's back for many reasons.

      "Paulo was the first to welcome me when I arrived at Juve and he's helped me a lot becoming a great friend. When I played against Genoa, I promised him that if I scored I would do his celebration, but the Dybala Mask is still his!"
