Van Barneveld's run unlikely to come to an end

Anderson's injury problems cast a doubt

Raymond van Barneveld produced a stunning display against Peter Wright

Semi-finals
ITV4, 7pm Sunday


R van Barneveld v M Suljovic

Raymond van Barneveld produced some vintage Barney magic when hammering Peter Wright 10-2 in the quarter-finals and the Dutchman's run may not be about to end when he takes on Mensur Suljovic.

An average of 104 and ten out of 16 on the finishing doubles blew Snakebite off the Milton Keynes stage and, although Suljovic recorded an impressive win over Rob Cross, this represents a different challenge for the Austrian. 

There was no expectation on Suljovic when taking on world champion Cross but the pressure will now be on the Gentle after that victory. 

Recommendation
R van Barneveld
1pt 8-11 general

M van Gerwen v G Anderson
Michael van Gerwen cruised through 10-2 against James Wade in the quarter-finals, and while you'd usually expect stiffer resistance for Gary Anderson, it's difficult to know what to expect given the Scot is experiencing back problems.

Dreamboy managed to get through 10-6 against Gerwyn Price in the last eight but it was more of a struggle than the scoreline suggests. 

It's tough to ask Anderson to go again so soon again given his issues and this match looks best left alone from a punting point of view.
