French Pro A Basketball League side Champagne Chalons-Reims and Ghana Forward are set to embark on a tricky away trip this weekend.

The Northern France based team face Cholet on Saturday December 2 with both sides in need of a win to avoid falling out of the playoffs picture.

Cholet lie 14th in the 18 team standings while Reims lie a spot above in 13th but both teams share the same record with four wins in ten games this season.

Reims head into the game on the back off a four game losing run including a 69-96 loss to Le Portel and 76-85 loss to Nanterre.

On the other hand, Cholet’s last outing in the league produced a 67-55 away win over Paris-Levall improving the team’s win record to four.

A loss for either team has big repercussions since Cholet need a win to maintain its momentum in the division while Reims a win to end the losing run.

Reims will lean heavily on Bentil’s scoring touch to win with the Ghanaian leading the team’s scorers chart.
