There is only one point separating the teams in The Seve Trophy after the second day of competition in Paris.

GB&I Captain Sam Torrance was happy with the golf, but undecided who to leave out for the foursomes; “The golf that was played was beautiful, Jamie Donaldson was nine under on his own. I've pretty much got my mindset what I'm going to do with foursomes. Unfortunately I have to leave two players out but that's not going to be easy.” Continental Europe Captain José María Olazábal was just a bit disappointed with the outcome today; “There is just a fraction of disappointment. We let a point go with the Italians; they had the match under control until the very end. Overall 3 -2 is not that bad. It's pretty much what we've said all along, these guys play great golf, and you have to be on your toes. When you play at this kind of level, it's decided on little things, and today was a good proof of that. I've left out Thomas Björn and Mikko for tomorrow morning. Thomas I think is okay. He played well today but 36 holes tomorrow, it could be just a little too much in the sense that I want him fresh for Sunday. I kept two pairings the same way because they have done well so far, and I've had to rest another guy and in this case it was Mikko. But most probably he will be playing in the afternoon.” The Continental Europe Team looked set to extend their overnight lead for much of Friday's play but a sterling fight back started by Scott Jamieson left the score at 5 ½  to 4  ½ heading into the weekend.  Paul Casey and Simon Khan had given Great Britain & Ireland a good start with a 3 and 2 victory over Mikko Ilonen and Thorbjørn Olesen, then Nicolas Colsaerts and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño equalled the biggest winning margin in the tournament's history with a 6 and 5 victory over Paul Lawrie and Stephen Gallacher. That result restored Continental Europe's two shot margin.  Jamie Donaldson and Marc Warren once again reduced the deficit with a 4 and 2 win over Thomas Björn and Miguel Angel Jiménez,  Francesco Molinari and Matteo Manassero looked to be cruising to victory against Scott Jamieson and David Lynn, having a two-stroke lead with two holes to play.  Scott's birdie on the 17th took it to the final hole, where he rolled in a six-foot birdie putt for the dramatic win. In the last match of the day, Tommy Fleetwood and Chris Wood came up agonizingly short against Joost Luiten and Gregory Bourdy, losing on the final hole. Tomorrow's 36 holes will be decisive, a good lead at the end of the day will make it an easier task in the singles on Sunday.
