RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD
The 2019 Premier League starts with a match between two former champions, with 2009 winner James Wade facing the 2014 title holder Raymond van Barneveld. Although they have met many times, this is only their third encounter since April 2016. The last time they faced-off was last November at the World Series of Darts Finals where Wade enjoyed a comfortable 11-2 victory in the semi-finals on his way to winning the tournament.
Barney cannot be easily written off. He has undoubted class, is still capable of beating the best and will surely be determined to give a good account of himself in his final Premier League campaign, but Wade certainly comes into the game in better form having reached the Masters final last weekend and his more reliable finishing could edge this game in his favour.
