```lis = Flatten[Transpose[
Outer[List, Range[9], 10*Range[4]]], 1]

Since you did not provide an example of the desired output, it is ambiguous as to which pair you want to save.

Split will group the elements

sp = Split[lis, #1[[2]] == #2[[2]] &];

First /@ sp

{{1, 10}, {1, 20}, {1, 30}, {1, 40}}

Last /@ sp

{{9, 10}, {9, 20}, {9, 30}, {9, 40}}

Thread[{Most[Last /@ sp], Rest[First /@ sp]}]

{{{9, 10}, {1, 20}}, {{9, 20}, {1, 30}},
{{9, 30}, {1, 40}}}
