Canada and Team OAR are already guaranteed two of the four semifinal spots in mixed doubles curling, but three others teams - Switzerland, Norway and China - will be fighting it out tonight for the other two.

Norway will play China at 7:05 p.m. in both teams’ final games of round robin play. If Norway wins, they will automatically reach the semifinals along with Switzerland. If China defeats Norway, however, they would force a tiebreak game to be played Sunday morning at 6:05 a.m. EST.

The two teams that would play in the potential tiebreak game will depend on Switzerland’s game against Team OAR Saturday night. Switzerland is guaranteed at least a spot in the tiebreaker, and automatically makes the semifinals with a win.

The United States, Korea and Finland have all be eliminated from medal contention.

Canada is guaranteed the No. 1 seed in the semifinals. Team OAR could end up in any of the other 2-4 seeds based on Saturday night's games.

Here is the full schedule for Saturday night’s games, all beginning at 7:05 p.m.

USA (2-4) vs. Finland (0-6)

Norway (4-2) vs. China (3-3)

Switzerland (4-2) vs. Team OAR (4-2)
