It took exactly 1 minute and 21 seconds for Douglas Costa to provide the assist on Mandzukic’s opening goal and then later getting another 2 assists as Juve beat Sampdoria 3-0 in Turin.

“I’m very happy, it was one of my best games since I’ve arrived. I hope to continue like this and keep providing assists that win matches.”

Costa is the first substitute to notch three assists in a Serie A match since at least 2004/05, the year OPTA started collecting data.

“We all played a great match, not just myself. I’m very happy to help my teammates. We have to continue to play this well to achieve our goals because the league isn’t over yet. However, we played united tonight which is what we needed after Madrid.”
