Watch: Bayern's Costa rainbows over Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt

Saturday August 29th, 2015

When things are going as well as they are for Bayern Munich, it's O.K. to get a little creative on the field.

That's exactly what Douglas Costa did on Saturday in the 81st minute of Bayern's 3–0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen. The 24-year-old Brazilian, who is in his first season in Munich after spending the previous five with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, rainbowed over Bayer midfielder Julian Brandt ... simply because he could.

Costa has been fantastic in his first three Bundesliga matches so far (one goal, two assists and countless other opportunities) for Bayern, which is sitting comfortably atop the league table having taken nine points from nine to start the 2015–16 campaign.
