CRISTIANO RONALDO has lost a primetime TV slot … to the darts!
Manchester United host Wolves at 5.30pm rather than 8pm so it does not clash with tonight's PDC final.
Michael Smith faces Peter Wright in the Ally Pally showcase later on.
Bully Boy Smith reached his second world darts final after a 6-3 win over James Wade.
Meanwhile, Snakebite Wright topped Gary Anderson 6-4 to keep up his aim of becoming a two-time champ.
Smith reached the final in 2019, but came up short against Michael van Gerwen.
But Wright did go on to win the big one a year later in 2020.
The climax to the darts will be broadcast live on Sky Sports – which forced them into a change for the footy.

United welcome Wolves to Old Trafford after the Premier League fixture was selected by them.
However, instead of the clash going head-to-head with the darts on the other channel, the match was changed to a 5.30pm kick-off instead.
United are looking for back-to-back Prem wins.
It is the first game of 2022 for both sides as Ralf Rangnick's men look to build on the comfortable 3-1 win over Burnley last time out.
Wolves meanwhile return from a Covid affected absence, with this their first game since a 0-0 draw with Chelsea on December 19.
