PREVIOUS MEETING
Michael van Gerwen 5-2 Joe Murnan

THE LOWDOWN

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN

  • Van Gerwen will look to bounce back from a high-quality 5-4 loss to Jonny Clayton in which the Dutchman averaged 107.92 in defeat.

  • The Dutchman’s qualification hopes are still in his own hands as a win would see him qualify and he will top the group if Jonny Clayton loses.

  • Van Gerwen has won this title on three previous occasions and he will be determined to retain the trophy after some inconsistent results in recent months.

JOE MURNAN

  • Murnan will be cursing himself after being 4-1 up and missing two match darts to beat Gary Robson on Sunday and his hopes are all but over.

  • The unlikely scenario that would see Murnan escape the group would be a 5-0 or 5-1 victory and Gary Robson losing his game to Jonny Clayton.

  • He will be fully determined to pick up a result regardless however as even finishing in third place will earn more prize money which is vital for the Order of Merit.

THE PREDICTION

Van Gerwen has averaged well in excess of 100 in both his matches so far and it was only an inspired performance from Jonny Clayton that has prevented the Dutchman from being sat on two wins. Murnan has not shown enough to even threaten an upset here so Van Gerwen is the safe and obvious pick.
