Yup - by coming 19th instead of 20th we get a first round bye. Not sure when that rule came in or if it has always been the case.

The number of teams that get a bye needs to be divisible by two, and they decided 22 teams get a bye so it’s the 20 premier league teams and two best relegated teams.

Carabao Cup draw ball numbers confirmed as Premier League teams enter second round

As was the case with the first round, the second round draw will be regionalised into North and South sections

The second-round draw for the Carabao Cup takes place on Tuesday night.

After the first-round tie picks bizarrely took place in a Morrison's near Wembley, this time the draw will take place at Salford's home ground following their mouthwatering encounter with Leeds.

 And there's plenty to look forward to as 13 Premier League teams - who are not competing in Europe this season - plus relegated Cardiff and Fulham enter the fray.

As was the case with the first round, the second round draw will be regionalised into North and South sections.

With no extra-time in the tournament, expect the draw to take place at the Peninsula Stadium around 10pm (UK time).

If you want the sponsor name it is Carabao EFL Cup. Just like how the Premier League is the Barclays Premier League and we're currently in the Sky Bet Championship.

Not sure why we would want a bye - it's a proper cup with Europa League entry to the winner, not some Autoglass/Corby Trouser Press type nonsense. Having said that, we have a diabolical record in it...

I dont recall it being stupid when Keegan's team knocked Southampton out and were 2 0 up with 5 to go in the quarters against Leicester. We wont talk about the shoot out 😞

Don't understand this attitude, seems like
you don't want us to ever win any silverware.
And some have the same idea about FA Cup.
Why do you bother supporting the club.😵

This cup competition has changed a lot since then.
