Kopman Price came into action first and met Mindaugas Barauskas from Lithuania. The number one in the world flew out of the starting blocks and seemed to face an easy race. However, it was Barauskas who brutally took the lead after trailing 1-0. Price recovered from this deficit and went on to win 4-2.
The single match turned out less positive for Clayton. Although the Welshman had a higher average, he had to acknowledge his superiority with 4-2 in Darius Labanauskas. The ensuing couple culminated in an exciting fight. Wales quickly made it to 3-1 thanks to good play and both Price and Clayton got a match dart. Lithuania, however, fought back and even pulled out a decisive leg. Wales was ultimately the strongest in this, thanks in part to a 180er from Price.
Wright struggles with difficult Kciuk
Peter Wright opened the evening on behalf of Scotland with a game against Krzysztof Kciuk from Poland. The 41-year-old Kciuk opened the match with a nice 88 finish, after which the next five legs also went with the darts. In the seventh and decisive leg, Wright had the initiative for a long time, but it was Kciuk who got a match dart first. The Pole missed on tops, allowing Wright to put Scotland 1-0 via double 18.
In the second game, John Henderson and Krzysztof Ratajski came into action. Both men missed a lot of doubles in the first two legs, but in both cases it was Henderson who pulled the longest. The Scot was also happier on the double in the remainder of the game, which means that Scotland will play against the Netherlands in the quarterfinals tomorrow.
Germany via decisive couple past Japan
Germany is the eighth and last country to qualify for the quarterfinals. Gabriel Clemens won 4-2 against Matsuda Jun in the first match, after which Max Hopp surprisingly lost 4-0 against Yoshihisa Baba in his single. In the decisive couple, the Germans had the greatest difficulty with Japan, but thanks to a 108 finish by Hopp, they still won 4-2.
