Dennis Nilsson has been drawn against local qualifier Marvin Wehder in the first round of the European Darts Matchplay.
Another event on the European Tour starts today, as the European Darts Matchplay will be held in Mannheim in Germany.
The PDC Nordic & Baltic representative is Dennis Nilsson, and he is ready for the tournament.
“I have trained well and I’m in good shape for the tournament,” Dennis Nilsson told pdc-nordic.tv.
The Swedish player has been drawn against Marvin Wehder who qualified for the tournament yesterday in the host nation qualification. Marvin Wehder averaged 78.10 throughout the qualification tournament.
“It is always harder to meet someone from the country you play in. But my chances are good,” Dennis Nilsson said.
“I have just won the Swedish Open and have a good self confidence. But dart is dart, so everything can happen. But I am well prepared.”
The match between Dennis Nilsson and Marvin Wehder will be played at approximately 14:30.
