Muirhead, the three-time world junior champion and reigning world silver medallist, has been in great form in Champery - losing just once in ten matches.

Russia were brushed aside 9-4 in the 1-2 page play-off, thanks in part to a stunning quadruple take-out by skip Muirhead.

But they will have another chance to book their final place when they take on Sweden, 5-3 winners over Switzerland, in Friday's semi-final.

"We're playing well and we've got good reason to be confident against whoever we play," said Muirhead.

"Russia played much better than they did in our round-robin match, so if it's them again, we'll need to lift our game again.

"However, we are strong when it matters and I'm delighted with how we are finishing games.

"We'll enjoy a day off now and just get focussed on the final. Whoever we play, it's going to be tough but we are ready."

In the men's competition, Norway's Thomas Ulsrud booked his final slot with a 5-4 win over Switzerland.

The Swiss will now get another chance to progress against Denmark, who beat Germany 10-5 to advance to the semi-finals.
