The Carabao Cup is the first domestic knockout football competition in England. The popular energy drink is the current sponsor of the England Football League (EFL) Cup. It is contested by the four highest tiers of the English football league system (the Premier League, SkyBet Championship, League One, and League Two). The tournament used to have little significance to the top English teams. Teams would typically field players that don’t get regular playtime during EPL cup matchdays.
Nowadays, the competition for silverware in England has meant that some teams prioritise playing the cup with the best side in order to win the match. Of late, Manchester City has dominated the Cup, winning four of the last six trophies up for grabs. Find out which team they will meet in the round of 16 matches of the EFL cup.
EFL Cup Predictions
The League Cup always tosses up a mismatch in the quality of the team. With the Premier League being regarded as the most competitive league in the world, lower-tier clubs struggle to match the intensity of the teams from the Premier League. There’s a mash-up of teams from the English Premier League facing each other while other EPL teams that qualified for this stage face clubs for the remaining tiers of English football.
If the Carabao Cup results from the previous round are any indication, there are no small teams in knockout competitions. Tottenham Hotspurs were dumped out Colchester to prolong their slump following a stellar season that saw them lose out to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final. Our EFL trophy predictions are submitted by expert gamblers that observe the team’s form and head-to-head results to decide the winner of the tie.
