We've analysed each of the eight seeds at this year's BetVictor World Cup Of Darts and assessed their chances of success at the team event. Here we look at #7 seeds Belgium:

  • Belgium reached the World Cup final in 2013 as an unseeded team and have made it through to the semi-finals in each of the last four years at the tournament.
  • Kim Huybrechts and Ronny Huybrechts paired up during their run to the final in 2013 and continued their partnership until last year when Dimitri Van den Bergh’s emergence up the rankings earned him a place in the team at the expense of Ronny.
  • Belgium showed no negative signs through the change of pairing when Kim Huybrechts and Van den Bergh reached the semi-finals last year. On their way to the final, they ousted England in the quarter-finals.

THE VERDICT

There was a question mark over Belgium last year that they wouldn’t have the same spark without Ronny Huybrechts partnering his brother Kim but those questions were answered as they reached the semi-finals with young rising star Van den Bergh slotting in seamlessly and the Belgian duo showed plenty of team spirit on their run to the last four. The World Cup format should bring out the best in them again and they have the potential to match their performance in 2018 and reach what would be a fifth consecutive World Cup semi-final for Belgium.
