The BetVictor World Cup of Darts moves on today with the remaining eight first round ties in Hamburg.
Current champions, the Netherlands, begin their title defence as World Champion Michael van Gerwen and debutant Jermaine Wattimena play Spain’s Cristo Reyes and Toni Alcinas. It promises to be a tough night for the Dutch pair, Spain has form for causing upsets and both their players are in good shape.
Rob Cross & Micheal Smith, representing England, play the Philippines, Australia play Finland and Austria take on Russia amongst the other ties.
Many will be keeping a keen eye on the Polish pairing who are tipped as dark horses by many!
