Vasek Pospisil won the battle of the Canadians as he beat Milos Raonic at the European Open while Cameron Norrie set up a second-round match against Diego Schwartzman.

The unseeded Pospisil beat the third-seed Raonic 7-6 (7-3), 7-5 and he will face either defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Gael Monfils in the quarter-final.

Norrie, meanwhile, set up a clash against the second-seeded Schwartzman with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Spanish qualifier Marcel Granollers.

The winner of the Norrie-Schwartzman match will face Gilles Simon in the quarter-final after the Frenchman beat Mackenzie McDonald from the United States 6-1, 6-1 in 63 minutes.

Former champion Richard Gasquet also advanced as he overcame a second-set wobble to beat Czech Jiri Vesely 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.

Up next for the 2016 champion is Jan-Lennard Struff after the German secured a 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3) win over Feliciano Lopez from Spain.
