Carabao Cup Quarterfinals

Two late Marcus Rashford goals allowed Man United to shake off Charlton Athletic, while Dan Burn and Joelinton were on target after halftime for Newcastle at an expectant St James’ Park in their victory over Leicester City

Southampton, then the Premier League’s bottom club, caused the sensation of the round as they ransacked a wretched Manchester City, with Sekou Mara and Moussa Djenepo getting the goals.

Raul Jimenez salvaged a draw for Wolves after their former defender Willy Boly opened the scoring for Forest. But goalkeeper Dean Henderson turned into the shootout hero as his Forest side prevailed 4-3 on spot kicks.

How does the Carabao Cup work in 2022/23?

The EFL Cup (Carabao Cup for sponsorship reasons) began with 92 participating clubs from the top four tiers of English football: Premier League (20 clubs), Championship (24 clubs), League One (24), and League Two (24). 

The 13 Premier League clubs not involved in European cup competitions joined in the 2nd Round, and the remaining seven sides in the 3rd Round.

  • 1st Round: Aug. 9-11
  • 2nd Round: Aug. 23-25
  • 3rd Round (Rd of 32): Nov. 8-10
  • 4th Round (Rd of 16): Dec. 20-22
  • Quarter-finals: Jan. 10-12
  • Semi-finals: Jan. 24-26 (Leg 1), Jan. 31-Feb. 2 (Leg 2)
  • Final: Sun, Feb. 26

Every round is single-elimination except for the semifinals, which are played over two legs (no away goals tiebreaker). There is no extra time up to and including the quarter finals, with matches level after 90 minutes going straight to penalties.

However, extra time will be in effect for the semifinal second legs and the final, if necessary.

The final is traditionally held at Wembley Stadium in London.

Why is it called Carabao Cup?

The knockout tournament has long been known as the League Cup or EFL Cup since it is organised by the English Football League, which is comprised of the second-tier Championship, third-tier League One, and fourth-division League Two. 

Beginning in the 1990s, sponsors began attaching their name to this tournament and the sponsor names caught on: Coca-Cola Cup, Worthington’s Cup, and the Carling Cup.

The latest sponsor is Thai energy drink company Carabao, which bought the title rights of the knockout tournament beginning with the 2017/18 edition, leading to the use of the Carabao Cup moniker.
