The 2020 PDC World Championship Final features World Number One Michael van Gerwen against Peter Wright. Van Gerwen has a dominant record against Wright, winning all seven major finals, but the stage is set for 'Snakebite' to spring a suprise in London.

Michael van Gerwen Form


Michae van Gerwen got past Jelle Klaasen, Ricky Evans and had an average of 104.09 in his 4-0 victory against Stephen Bunting in the 4th round. Van Gerwen averaged 99.50 in his 5-2 quarter-final win against Darius Labanauskas, losing the first set but regaining control and finishing with a 45% checkout percentage.

Van Gerwen's average slipped to 96.34 in a 6-3 win against Nathan Aspinall in the semi-finals but the tournament favourite and defending champions knows he has to play better in the final. "So far I didn’t have to play my A game yet, it’s nice to be in the final without having to be at your top level. But I will have to be because Peter Wright’s playing really well and I have to give him a proper game."

Peter Wright Form


Peter Wright beat Noel Malicdem, Seigo Asada and Jeffrey de Zwaan before averaging 105.86 and a checkout percentage of 48.65 in a 5-3 win against Luke Humphries in the quarter-finals. 'Snakebite' then averaged 98.39 as he beat Gerwyn Price 6-3 to advance to the final.

Wright reached the 2014 PDC World Championship Final where he was defeated 7-4 by Michael van Gerwen. He is in great form and has a good chance in another shot at the title.
