Premier League powerhouses Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will both be on the road in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round-of-16 matches on Tuesday as they travel to Juventus and FC Basel, respectively.

Tuesday marks the beginning of the tournament's knockout stages and sees Spurs make the trip to Turin to take on Serie A champions Juventus, with these two sides having never met in competition before.

In fact, their only previous collision came in a pre-season friendly last summer, when Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen scored to give the Wembley Stadium hosts a 2-0 win, a feat they'll hope to replicate in Italy this week.

Premier League leaders City have a far simpler-looking task on their hands when they travel to St Jakob-Park in Switzerland to face Basel, who are the rank outsiders in the Champions League round of 16.

Read on for a preview of Tuesday's round-of-16 kick-off, complete with updated tournament winners, odds and all the necessary live-stream information needed to tune in.

Preview

After beating Real Madrid once and Borussia Dortmund twice during the group stage, Tottenham have in part proved their credentials as European contenders this season, but it will mean little if they fall to Juve.

Mauricio Pochettino's men travel to the Allianz Stadium following recent home wins over Manchester United and Arsenal, but breaking the deadlock in Turin is likely to prove a considerably more difficult task on current form:

Juventus’ defence are back to their unbelievable best 🚫 https://t.co/rrjRsYnsdO

Manager Massimiliano Allegri has reformed the Old Lady following a sluggish start to the campaign, and Juventus now sit just one point off Serie A leaders Napoli, while Spurs are third in the Premier League.

Pochettino faces a tactical minefield in attempting to clinch a result in Turin while holding the Bianconeri at bay, and former Premier League defender Kevin Kilbane explained the size of that task on Match of the Day:

Tottenham haven't managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last three trips away from Wembley, but they do have six in their last 10 outings and will hope an optimal display in Italy will tee them up for an easier finish in London in the second leg on March 7.

City manager Pep Guardiola has run into a series of injury setbacks recently, and while forward Gabriel Jesus is on the sidelines, Goal's Sam Lee also confirmed Tuesday's meeting will come too early for Leroy Sane:

Guardiola says Sane has just been running in training and that he is doing better than expected, but he "doesn't think" he'll be fit for the Basel game

But such is the depth of City's squad that the midweek trip to Switzerland shouldn't cause too much concern, with their stacked resources more than capable of seeing off Basel even with some stars absent.

Bernardo Silva is one of those coming into his own, and he posted a positive message heading to Basel after playing a hand in Saturday's 5-1 demolition of Leicester City:

Bernardo Silva @BernardoCSilva

HUGE win today! Super happy with our 13th straight home victory in the @premierleague ! Congrats to @aguerosergiokun for the goals and thanks to all the @ManCity fans for your support! Next stop, Basel… Let’s go City! https://t.co/GhvHMhItju

The Citizens have proved relentless in the Premier League this season, and Basel run the risk of being blasted at home unless they can tame a side that has scored three or more goals on 19 occasions this season.

Basel are five points off Swiss Super League leaders Young Boys and lost their most recent home outing, a 1-0 defeat to Lugano at St Jakob-Park. They must now hope to limit the relentless streak of Guardiola's City.
