Either match has all the credentials to be a final, but the Taylor versus Van Barneveld match is especially mouth-watering. It is a repeat of their dramatic 2007 final at the Circus Tavern that Barney won in a sudden-death leg.
Both men have found their best form at just the right time after a hit and miss season.
Taylor, who is still on course to cause the bookmakers severe misery if he wins the tournament after being backed off the boards at 2/1 in the ante-post markets, has been in imperious form thus far. After routine wins in the early rounds, punters got a real glimpse of Taylor’s current form when he dismantled last year’s finalist Andy Hamilton 5-0 in the quarter-final.
Only dropping two legs in the entire tie, Taylor averaged over 101 and killed off legs in devastating fashion as Hamilton could only watch on in awe. As seen in Taylor’s previous 13-PDC titles, you would expect him to further improve with every game he plays, and if he is to beat Van Barneveld, he will need to probably do just that.
He is favourite in the markets to reach the final and can be backed at 8/15 to beat the Dutchman. However, the money has dried up for Taylor in the win market with punters seemingly favouring the chances of Barney, who can be backed at 6/4 to end Taylor’s 2013 World Championship campaign.
Barney won his first two matches in typical style but showed that he is a potential champion this year when he destroyed Gary Anderson 4-0 in the last 32, and then Simon Whitlock 5-1 in the quarter-finals. His passage to this stage has been much tougher than Taylor’s and that may work in his favour for their much anticipated clash.
However, stats followers will be well aware that Van Barneveld has not beaten Taylor since 2009. Either way, whatever the result, this is a match that simply can’t be missed.
The night’s other game sees James Wade take on Michael Van Gerwen. The Machine came through a cracker of a semi-final to beat Wes Newton 5-4, where his doubles got himself out jail.
He will need to improve his scoring to see off the brilliant Dutchman, who beat Adrian Lewis 5-4 on Saturday evening, in one of the best matches ever seen at Alexandra Palace.
