The pair won against Brazilian team Alison/Alvaro Filho 2-0 (21:16, 21:19).
The win means the Latvian contenders are into the semi-finals, making them one of the last four teams in the competition with three medals to be decided. One more win will guarantee a silver at the very least, while a loss would see them heading into a playoff for bronze.
