Is EFL Carabao Cup semi-final one leg or two? Full rules for 2020/21 competition

THE CARABAO CUP is now down to the final four.

Man Utd take on Man City in a huge Manchester derby while Brentford face Tottenham, but what are EFL Cup semi-final rules?

Is the Carabao Cup semi-final one leg or two?

The Carabao Cup semi-final has traditionally been two legs, although the rules have been changed in recent years.

Away goals were previously used after extra time to separate two sides if they happened to be level after two legs.

But that was done away with when the EFL scrapped extra time, meaning any ties that were level were decided on penalties.

And this year's Carabao Cup semi-final will consist of just one leg in order to ease fixture congestion caused by the delayed start to the season and the Covid pandemic.

Whichever team is drawn first in each tie will play at home.

Does the Carabao Cup have VAR?

The Carabao Cup does not have VAR – the only competition Premier League sides participate in in which this is the case.

The tournament is organised by the EFL who have chosen not to introduce it at any level.

Which teams are in the Carabao Cup semi-final?

  • Manchester United vs Manchester City
