Roberto Bautista Agut beat Peter Gojowczyk 7-5 6-1 to set up a final in the Open Sud de France against Belgian David Goffin in what will be a a battle of the event's top two seeds.
The Spanish top seed Bautista Agut was solid throughout, saving the three break points he faced and breaking the German qualifier's serve four times while winning 84% of his first-serve points on Saturday.
Bautista Agut,who wrapped up victory in just over an hour and a quarter, is chasing a 10th career title and his first since winning in Doha in 2019.
The Belgian Goffin beat unseeded Belarusian Egor Gerasimov 6-4 2-6 6-4 in a semi-final in which both players dropped serve three times.
Goffin, who lost his previous two semifinals in Montpellier, is seeking a first ATP title since 2017 and his fifth overall.
He leads Bautista Agut 3-2 in head-to-head matches, winning on clay when they last met three years ago.
