The Power was more impressive in his opening match against David Platt - 3:0 with a 3-dart average of almost 102.
Raymond Van Barneveld has whitewashed Robbie Green and Alan Norris in the first two rounds, before edging out Adrian Lewis 4-3 (as we tipped) from 3-1 down in a Last 16 epic match with a 95 average. In the previous match against Norris, 'Barney' won the first 10 legs in a row, ended the match with an average of 103.59 and hit seven 180s.
Taylor has won 56 of his 76 meetings with Van Barneveld down the years including their last three, in what could be named "El Clasico" of darts. They have met three times at Ally Pally, and Taylor has won them all – including a thrashing in the 2009 final. Anyway, Barney has enjoyed the upper-hand during recent Premier League campaigns.
