Kyren Wilson and Barry Hawkins go head to head for the right to be crowned the 2022 European Masters champion on Sunday.
Wilson and Hawkins do battle for the season’s second silverware at the Stadthalle in Furth, as well as the top prize of £80,000.
Ironically, it is a repeat of the last final to be played at the venue prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Hawkins prevailing 4-3 in the 2019 Paul Hunter Classic showpiece.
Having failed to progress beyond the last 32 of any event since being runner-up to Neil Robertson in last season’s Players Championship, the Hawk has enjoyed a timely return to form this week to reach his ninth ranking final.
The world number 12 has produced nine centuries, while dropping just eight frames on the way to putting the likes of Judd Trump and Mark Williams to the sword.
Now, the three-time ranking event winner is aiming to end a five-year wait for silverware, as well as his losing streak in finals, having lost five on the spin since his most recent triumph at the 2017 World Grand Prix.
He is also playing a man who was won seven of their 10 most recent showdowns in Wilson, who had lost each of their first five encounters.
The Warrior has demonstrated his trademark battling qualities on the way to reaching a 12th ranking final, taking out the likes of Jimmy Robertson and Shaun Murphy before scraping past Ali Carter in a deciding frame on Saturday.
The world number eight is now looking to complete a hat-trick of ranking titles in this part of the world, following his triumphs at the 2018 Paul Hunter Classic and 2019 German Masters.
Play gets underway at 1pm BST on Sunday with the opening eight frames, while continuing at 7pm with a maximum of nine to determine who lift the 2022 European Masters title.
