The world number 4 and the world number 3 will battle it out at the Tempodrom’s main table in what is set to be a cracking encounter.

The match is a repeat of the 2014 German Masters final which saw Ding beat Trump 9-5.

Both players have endured frustrating times in recent times but one of them will be able to secure a place in the semi-finals of a major ranking event with victory.

Ding, winner of this season’s World Open, said he was feeling good about his game again after beating Ricky Walden 5-2 in the last 16 round.

And Trump, who recently suffered a heartbreaking Masters semi-final defeat to Kyren Wilson, beat Joe Perry 5-3.

Meanwhile, Mark Williams’ impressive season continued after he beat Matthew Selt 5-3. And Jimmy Robertson, who beat defending champion Anthony Hamilton on Wednesday, reached his first major ranking quarter-final after beating Gary Wilson 5-3.

The remaining last 16 matches take place this afternoon before all four quarter-final matches are staged tonight.
