First competitive start looms for Tatarusanu – the goalkeeper’s record against Roma

By Oliver Fisher -

Ciprian Tatarusanu will replace Gianluigi Donnarumma in the starting line-up for Monday’s game against Roma at San Siro:

Via a statement on the official website the club have announced that after undergoing tests last night Gianluigi Donnarumma, Jens Petter Hauge and three coaching staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.

They become the latest to be hit by the virus after defenders Matteo Gabbia and Leo Duarte and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This means that Tatarusanu is in line for his first competitive appearance for Milan as he will likely take Donnarumma’s place in net.

As MilanNews24 report, the Romania international has a mixed record in his six fixtures against Roma in the past. All of those matches were played while he was at Fiorentina, with whom he was on the winning side twice, drawing once and losing three times.

Tatarusanu conceded 11 goals across those six games but did keep two clean sheets.
