Alright, here it goes. Now for about 25% of all FIFA 22 Players, if you've opened packs during the defender TOTY release, you've probably packed this guy. Considering how many are on the market at the current moment, this guy has been easily obtainable. For about 3 months, I've had Mid Cech in goal from the SBC and before the patch he was a God. Even after the patch he's still good but they've definitely nerfed keepers. That being said, we're talking about TOTY Gigi. If you've played with his gold, you'll know that he's one of the best keepers in the game. I can firmly say that he is STILL A BEAST! His animations are amped even more now! He feels faster when he runs to get the ball. Of course don't hold Y/Triangle expecting him to grab everything but when the opponent is in the box, there's something about him that almost assures him to save the ball. Now, he is not perfect. There was a goal that a gold CR7 scored that bounced from his hand into the goal that was actually insane. But other than that, his height combined with his speed make this card a great keeper. Yes, there will ALWAYS be the argument that gold Areola or Pope will do just as well. And if you have 200-300k, there are definitely more useful players to buy than a over-average goalkeeper. But, if you pack him, you will enjoy him. NOTE: Every player's experience is different! You may find him conceding goals more than you expect but if you're relying on your goalkeeper to do your defenders' job, then you simply don't know ball. TOTY Donnarumma can be the saving grace that your team needs when all else in your AI defense is lost!
After seeing him at about 180k (Xbox) I thought I'd try him and boy did I screw up. You'd think he'd be the best goalie in the game with his stats and height but he plays like a non-rare silver. His positioning and handling are HORRIBLE. He lets every outside of the box finesse shot in, and refuses to catch a shot. I conceded so many rebound goals with him, it's infuriating. Gold Areola is much better than TOTY Donnaruma and that makes NO sense. Save your coins and don't bother with this card, trust me and all the other poor souls who tried this card.
Donnarumma is not good. If you pack him, maybe use him, but never buy him. I currently plays in division 2, and Donnarumma doesnt save anything. Especially his positioning is awful. I packed this guy, and was gazzed, because its obviously a TOTY. Im not gonna say that he is bad, but for a TEAM OF THE YEAR, he is definetly not worth it. I have switched him out for gold Maignan. That is how bad he is. And mine is untradeble. He is very good at saving close-up shots, and fills a lot in the goal, but when it comes to shot closer to the edge of the box, his positioning and agility is horendous. Dont buy him!
He can save close shots
He doesnt work, and do too many mistakes.
Shots further away from goes in far too often.
When its a TOTY, you would expect a lot more from him
