Live Darts on Sunday: German Darts Grand Prix 2017 Day Three preview and order of play

The tenth European Tour event of the year draws to a close in Mannheim on Sunday as the 16 remaining hopefuls battle it out to be crowned the inaugural German Grand Prix champion.

Five seeded stars bit the dust at the Second Round stage on Saturday, including second seed Peter Wright, Dave Chisnall and Kim Huybrechts, though a clutch of usual suspects remain firmly in the running.

Michael van Gerwen is now odds-on favourite to make it back-to-back Euro Tour triumphs in the space of seven days, and the current World Champion aims to advance to the evening's Quarter-Finals at the expense of Gerwyn Price.

Van Gerwen averaged 111 in whitewashing Richard North in his opener, and any such repeat performance could spell grave danger for the outspoken Welshman - who has lost all nine of their previous meetings.

Another stand-out Last 16 tie sees third seed Mensur Suljovic up against a red hot Rob Cross - who averaged 103.8 in defeating Jan Dakker and is aiming to continue his consistent run of results in his debut European Tour campaign.

Gibraltar Trophy champion Michael Smith will be poised for a close-run contest with two-time Players Championship event winner this season - Joe Cullen.

US Masters finalist Daryl Gurney, the number six seed, aims to remain on course for a second European Tour final appearance by overcoming eleventh seed Ian White.

Two players hoping to gatecrash October's World Grand Prix in Dublin go head-to-head as Ronny Huybrechts takes on Vincent van der Voort.

Huybrechts dumped out Peter Wright courtesy of some fine finishing on Saturday and victory here would all but assure him of a place in the double-start major next month.

Aussie ace Kyle Anderson, conqueror of Kim Huybrechts in the last round, looks to sustain his superb run of form when he comes up against his stablemate Jelle Klaasen - who will be out to improve on an average of just 84 in seeing off Jamie Bain on Day Two.

Fourth seed Simon Whitlock aims to avert becoming the latest big-named scalp of young gun Nathan Aspinall - who has already sent home Dave Chisnall en route to this stage.

A resurgent Darren Webster, who came through the UK qualifying event to reach the main rounds, aims to seal his spot in the Last Eight by dispatching former European Tour finalist Benito van de Pas.

The action gets underway from 12pm BST, with all matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs at the Maimarkthalle in Mannheim, Germany.
