Live Darts on Sunday April 15: German Darts Open 2018 Day Three preview and order of play

The third European Tour event of the season reaches its climax in Saarbrücken on Sunday as the 16 remaining hopefuls vie to be crowned champion.

Only two seeded players fell at the first hurdle on Saturday, one of which being defending champion Peter Wright as he crashed out at the hands of home favourite Max Hopp.

Wright had finished runner-up to Michael van Gerwen in both of this year's European Tour events so far, now a fresh name has the opportunity to end the dominance of the Dutchman.

Van Gerwen is unbeaten in 19 matches on the European Tour stretching back to October 2017 and aims to storm into the Quarter-Finals at the expense of resurgent veteran Alan Tabern.

Tabern, who has seen off Dragutin Horvat and Steve Beaton en route to this stage, has won six of his eleven previous meetings with MVG, though the pair have only met once in the last five years.

Meanwhile, in-form Michael Smith steps up his pursuit of a fifth European Tour title with a tricky clash against world number 18 Jelle Klaasen - a former Euro Tour finalist.

World Grand Prix champion Daryl Gurney, who is now six matches unbeaten in the Premier League, comes up against Mervyn King - who knocked out James Wade in Saturday's Second Round.

Reigning World Champion Rob Cross whitewashed Dimitri van den Bergh in his opener and will be out to continue in that ruthless vein when he faces two-time World Championship quarter-finalist Darren Webster.

Host Nation qualifier Hopp looks to make it back-to-back European Tour Quarter-Final appearances by overcoming last year's German Open runner-up Benito van de Pas - who survived seven match darts against Paul Nicholson on Saturday evening.

Another mouth-watering tie sees world number seven Dave Chisnall taking on world number 13 Ian White, with 'Chizzy' looking to follow up Saturday's blistering display in which he averaged 108.65 in whitewashing Jose Justicia.

The two players to have been eliminated from the Premier League on Judgement Night a fortnight ago lock horns as Champions League winner Mensur Suljovic faces Welsh ace Gerwyn Price.

Daniel Larsson defeated Jan Dekker 6-2 in Round One on Friday before being handed a bye into the Last 16 following the withdrawal of Simon Whitlock, and his reward is a show-down with seventh seed Joe Cullen.

The action gets underway from midday, with Third Round and Quarter-Final matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.
