Carabao Cup 2nd round fixtures: The 2022/23 Carabao Cup is in its second round with a total of 25 matches taking place between Tuesday and Wednesday, August 23-24.

The second round is the stage where the 13 Premier League clubs not involved in European Cup competitions enter the tournament, and so far 9 out of 10 have reached the third round. Fulham was the only top-flight club to go out in the first leg after fielding a reserve side against League Two club Crawley Town and paying the price.

Two other Premier League sides needed penalty kicks to see off lower division opposition. Leicester City needed a shootout to get past League Two’s Stockport County, and Bournemouth advanced against Norwich City via spot-kicks.

Below are all the results with available highlights. The final four matches of the round will be in action on Wednesday with Newcastle United, Leeds United, and Brighton all featuring in Premier League matches on Sunday.

Is there extra time in the second round of the Carabao Cup?

The second round will unfold similar to the previous round with single elimination knockout round matches that must have one winner on the night.

But if the teams are level after 90 minutes, they will go straight to penalty kicks in the second round. Extra time does not come into play until the two-legged semi-final stage. There, if the clubs are level on aggregate at the end of the second leg of the semi-finals, they will play 30 minutes of extra time. If no winner emerges during extra time, a penalty kick shootout will decide the winner of the semi-finals.

The tournament final at Wembley Stadium will also feature extra time and penalty kicks if necessary. Both were played during the Liverpool v Chelsea final in the latest edition, where a penalty shootout saw goalkeepers score tries as the shootout ended 11-10 in Liverpool’s favor.
