3 French pairs to follow
On track 2, in a mixed event, Leygue/Pothier will take on the Portuguese duo Deus/Vilela (seeded 2) at the end of the morning. Miguel Deus is well known to the French for being great during the FIP RISE Bordeaux. So the tactics of the French team will be to try to avoid playing directly against them.
In the third lane, at the end of the afternoon, Jennier / Pothier will oppose the first seed in the table, the Spanish duo of Barrera / Caparros, made up of players who are ranked among the top 40 players in the world. The French have spent many hours on the slopes and are in great shape, which gives them the confidence to try and cause upset in this match.
At the same time, on the fourth track, there should be a quarter-final between the French teams Maigret / Tesson and the Portuguese Fazendeiro / Oliveira. The French are seeded 4, while the Portuguese are seeded 5. The French have a slight advantage in this confrontation, having already faced teams of a good level since the start of the tournament, unlike the Portuguese who did not yet have a reference opposition. Because of the low level of play so far. Since the start of the competition, the Portuguese duo have only conceded two matches in these European Games.
