It will be a long day for the eventual finalists and winners of the Bwin PDC World Cup of Darts as the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will all take place in an action-packed day in Frankfurt.

The quarter-finals and semi-finals will both be played in the same format as the second round, but in the final, it will be first to three points as both players from both teams will all play each other, and a doubles match will be played if required if the match is tightly poised at 2-2 after four singles matches.

Belgium will play Australia in the first quarter-final of the afternoon, and both comfortably progressed in the second round, beating their opponents 2-0. However, Australia’s Simon Whitlock averaged just 76 and Paul Nicholson just 82. They will need to pick up these averages if they are to win this tie.

Hong Kong have been very much the shocks of the tournament and they knocked of the Republic of Ireland in a dramatic doubles decider to make it this far. They will come up against Scotland in the quarter-finals. Peter Wright has outperformed World Champion and Premier League champion Gary Anderson so far, and the world number three will be keen to pick up his form on the final day of the event.

Germany will be looking to delight the home crowd and make it far in this competition and so far all has gone to plan for the home nation, and they made it this far by beating Austria 2-0. England have performed well so far in this competition and the strong paring of Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor will be confident of making it through to the semi-finals with a win here.

Northern Ireland gave the Netherlands a run for their money last year in the semi-finals, and the two will face off again in the quarter-finals of this year’s staging of the competition in Frankfurt. Both have played well over the course of the weekend, and you can expect a high quality tie here.

The semi-finals and the final will be played in the evening session once the quarter-finals have been sorted out in the afternoon session.
