Ahead of tonight's highly-anticipated BoyleSports World Grand Prix final between Gerwyn Price and Dirk van Duijvenbode, we take a look at the key performance indicators of both players in the tournament so far.

All eyes will be on the Ricoh Arena as the highly-fancied Price goes for a fourth TV title against the tournament's surprise package Van Duijvenbode, a 200/1 outsider with BoyleSports at the start of the event.

The Dutch aubergine farmer has won plenty of admirers over the last week and will now compete in one of the biggest matches in world darts which will be broadcast live around the world from from 2000 BST.

World number three Price comes into the contest as considerable favourite at 2/9 with BoyleSports, while Van Duijvenbode is priced as a 10/3 outsider. However, the tournament stats point to a closer contest.

Interestingly, Van Duijvenbode has won more legs and lost less legs than Price.

Added to that, the Dutchman boasts superior accuracy on the outer ring, both in terms of starting and finishing doubles, and it's already easy to make a case for the underdog.

Furthermore, Van Duijvenbode is visibly growing in confidence on the big stage, going from limping over the line in a drab first round contest against Mensur Suljovic to defeating Gary Anderson and Simon Whitlock in impressive fashion over the last two nights.

The 28-year-old, who is the first player to reach the final on debut since 1998, can also take inspiration from his second round opponent Dimitri Van den Bergh who defied the odds to win his first TV title at the World Matchplay in July.

However, to claim glory Van Duijvenbode will have to surpass his prior achievements to defeat against arguably the best player in the world right now and a man on a mission to become world number one in Price. 

Despite his inferiority on the doubles, Price's tournament average is over four points higher than his opponent's.

The Welshman has also hit more 180s, which suggests the match could come down to Van Duijvenbode's doubling versus Price's scoring.

In what promises to be a vocal affair between two performers who wear their hearts on their sleeves, Price may rely on his heavy scoring to make up for not getting away as quickly on the starting doubles.

Therefore, for Van Duijvenbode to stand a genuine chance of victory it is imperative that he replicates the accuracy he showed on double 16 in his last three matches.

That said, if there's one thing this tournament has taught us it is to expect the unexpected, as shown by just two seeds making it through the first round, so brace yourselves for an unpredictable final.
