There is a bumper night of action set for tonight as some of the biggest names come into the foray at the European Darts Grand Prix including Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross and home favourite Max Hopp.
We start off with Cross who once again takes on the in-form Dutchman Jeffrey de Zwaan at the European Darts Grand Prix. ‘The Black Cobra’ and ‘Voltage’ always have quality tussles so this one will likely be no different in a tie that as well will be frenetic and fast-paced.
Next up is Darren Webster entering the tournament and he will take on Vincent van der Voort in another game that is bound to be fast-paced.
Daryl Gurney is also a man in form but ‘Superchin’ himself faces a tough test in Chris Dobey who was excellent on Friday in demolishing Madars Razma. If Dobey can bring that today, it could be too much for the Northern Irishman.
Mensur Suljovic vs Steve Beaton follows that with the latter in particular playing some of his best darts for quite some time. ‘The Bronzed Adonis’ much to the pleasure of his legions of fans has been rolling back the years, can he continue that against ‘The Gentle’?
Adrian Lewis and Jamie Hughes will face off again in a match that Hughes lost 6-1 last time on the ProTour, can he finally get some luck on his side after a somewhat unlucky spell to start his full PDC career?
Max Hopp will have the crowd on his side in his contest but with his opponent Nathan Aspinall in good form, will ‘The Asp’ silence the partizan crowd.
Then it’s the turn of Michael van Gerwen as he takes on Brendan Dolan. Interestingly Dolan was one of only a few men to beat Mighty Mike last year on the tour, can he do it again?
Finally Peter Wright will look to build some form back up after his humbling against Van Gerwen as he takes on youngster Niels Zonneveld.
