Barcelona - Dominika Cibulkova and Sara Errani cruised to easy straight-set victories on Saturday to set up a meeting in the Barcelona Open final.

Cibulkova routed Sorana Cirstea of Romania 6-1, 6-1, while seventh-seeded Italian Errani was a 6-1, 6-2 victor over Spanish hopeful Carla Suarez Navarro.

Errani's ninth straight victory on clay put her into her second final of the season as the 33rd-ranked Italian looks to follow up her Acapulco triumph in February.

Sunday's match will be third-seeded Cibulkova's first final of the year with the 17th-ranked Slovak having won four of their six meetings - including the last two - although she lost their sole meeting on clay in 2007.
