Cambrai put on a brilliant display as they demolished Narbonne 3-0. Daniel Cagliari scored 20 points for his side.
Narbonne had won six of their last seven going into the first leg and will need to put in a top performance to turn the tie around.
In the most entertaining match, Chaumont came from two sets down to beat Tours 3-2. They saved two match points in the third set to bounce back brilliantly and force a final set tiebreak. Cuban player Jesus Herrera made 26 points.
