Phil Taylor v Paul Nicholson live preview - Taylor awaits grudge match

(credit: Lawrence Lustig/ PDC)

Phil Taylor finally has the chance to settle the score with Paul Nicholson as the pair meet in the pick of this afternoon's matches at the European Championships.  

To watch and bet on live coverage of the European Darts Championship, go to Bet 365 > Live streaming > Darts

All the pre-tournament talk was of a possible quarter-final showdown between the two players, now the time for talking is over.

Nicholson threatened to "put Taylor to bed" when they next met on stage during an interview at the World Matchplay, however Taylor has responded by produced some of his best darts over the past two weeks.

Nicholson has a relatively good record against The Power and looks all set to land a Premier League place next year.

However a fired-up Taylor is capable of producing unbeatable form at any given time and will be intent on shutting up the bad-boy Geordie.

Taylor is strong favouirte, best priced at 1/7 with Victor Chandler, however Nicholson's odds of 6/1 with Sportingbet may prove good value considering his 'no fear' approach to big games, especially against Taylor. 

The game is scheduled to begin at 16:15 UK time.
