The darts season is in full swing as the jostling for titles continues in the PDC.

The European Championship is next and the Salzburgarena crowd will be expecting a thrilling four-day tournament starting on Thursday.

There have been four different winners in the last four editions of the European Championship – can the home-favourite and second seed Mensur Suljovic make it five?

He’ll do well to topple the likes of Gerwyn Price, Nathan Aspinall, Peter Wright and Michael van Gerwen in Austria, but there is every chance that 2021 will continue to deliver shocks on the oche.

Who Are The Favourites For The 2021 European Championship Darts?

  • Gerwyn Price  “Iceman” Price will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Clayton in the World Grand Prix final. The world number one is an excellent TV player and thrives under pressure.
  • Michael van Gerwen  MVG has four European titles to his name but has fallen slightly out of form since the Covid-19 pandemic started. His scoring is still expected to impress, and his purple patches are often unrivalled across the sport.
  • Peter Wright  “Snakebite” is the defending champion at the Europeans, having dominated the event in 2020. Wright averaged an impressive 104 in last year’s final beating James Wade.
  • Jose De Sousa – Despite the odd miscount, De Sousa is one of the best players in the world on current form. The Portuguese won the Grand Slam in 2020 and has a taste for success.
  • Mensur Suljovic – Former Champions League winner Mensur Suljovic will fancy his chances in front of a home Austrian crowd. He’s not in the best of form, but on his day is capable of beating anyone.
