I'd say a bagel or pasta would be good.

do you think you want simple or complex carbs before a competition?
I'm thinking complex. but im not sure.

I would think you'd want complex a couple of hours before the match starts. He apparently wants to know what to eat "just before" the match. I would say nothing, but if you haven't eaten at all then I guess some sort of simple sugar would be best.
