Mensur Suljovic has continued in his defence of his German Darts Masters title by easing past Martin Schindler to move into the semi-finals in Cologne.

Suljovic will take on either Rob Cross or Gabriel Clemens in the second semi-final with the duo set to face off in the last Quarter-Final after a 8-2 win over ‘The Wall’.

Schindler started proceedings the better of the two claiming the first leg but ‘The Gentle’ reeled off three legs in a row to take a commanding lead.

He extended it from there to a 5-1 lead at the interval taking complete control of the contest with Schindler facing a mountain to climb in the second half.

Schindler came back and hit a 180 but Suljovic did as well claiming a 6-1 lead to move further clear. It was a leg back though for Schindler who was 6-2 behind.

He pressured again with a 180 but once again was pegged back by Suljovic who went one away and from there he closed out the contest at 8-2 to remain on course to reclaim his title.
