Mark Allen - Allen should win as favorite
Mark Allen will enter this match with momentum after claiming victory over Ma Hailong in his most recent match, which was played in the International Championship Qualification and ended with a score of 6-2. However, prior to that match, Mark Allen suffered a defeat at the hands of Zhengyi Fan in the Shanghai Masters in a match that concluded with a score of 3-6. In addition, Mark Allen picked up victories in the European Masters against John Astley and Anton Kazakov. It is anticipated that the fact that the Northern Irish golfer is the favorite will give him an advantage as he continues his pursuit of a spot in the main competition of the British Open.
Anthony McGill - hoping to continue his winning ways
Anthony McGill will come into this match having won his previous two matches in a row, first against Allen Burden in the match to qualify for the International Championship and then against Himanshu Dinesh Jain in the match to qualify for the English Open. However, the fact that the Scottish will be going into this match as the underdog means that it will be a significant one for him, as he will now need to perform at his absolute best if he wants to win here. In the interim, before those three victories in a row, Anthony McGill suffered setbacks in his matches against Si Jiahui, Dominic Dale, and Ishpreet Chadha.
