Are you roasting it right now? Or is this a future meal?

And are you looking for actual roasting method advice, or sauces/sides, etc.?

When you roast a duck make sure you put it on a rack since they are very greasy. This allows the grease to fall through to the bottom of the pan.

Actually, these days the only way I roast a duck is on my indoor rotisserie. No smoke, no greasy spattering, & a juicy, crisp-skinned, nearly fat-free bird. WONDERFUL!!! Don't know how I managed all these years without it. I'm only sad that it's not quite wide/long enough to do a goose.

If you are roasting one in a conventional oven, I suggest you consult Julia Child's The Way To Cook & follow her steam-roasting method. I use it every Xmas to do the holiday roast goose, & just like rotisserie cooking, you end up with a juicy, crisp-skinned, nearly fat-free bird.

we always roasted duck or goose by pricking the fat pockets and draining the fat (nicely rendered, and usable for other dishes!) we emptied the roaster twice for a duck three times for a goose. we also basted the bird with vodka to help act as an astringent. beautifully browned and crispy.
