Scotland's men will go for gold at the European Curling Championships after beating Italy 9-6 in the semi-final.

Bruce Mouat's rink will meet unbeaten Sweden - who beat Germany 6-3 - in Saturday's final, while Italy and Germany meet in the bronze-medal match.

Mouat's team - including Grant Hardie, Bobby Lammie and Hammy McMillan - required an extra end after Italy levelled at 6-6 in the 10th.

But Mouat held his nerve with the final stone to see the Scots through.

The 24-year-old is making his debut at European level, having marked his first World Championships appearance with a bronze medal in April.

The Scots finished second in the round-robin standings with a record of seven wins and two losses.

They lost 9-8 to final opponents Sweden on Wednesday, having gone into the 10th end 8-6 up.

BBC Sport Scotland will stream live action from all of the medal matches in Estonia.
