Carabao Cup: Why the League Cup is always a GOAL FEST

We don’t like to blow our own trumpet, but we’ve been rather handy with the old betting tips in the last seven days or so.

In the Champions League action last week we predicted Marcus Rashford to score on yet another debut against Basel, which he did.

And then we had Heung-Min Son to continue his fabulous record against Borussia Dortmund by scoring first, which of course he did.

Now while we’ll stop at predicting the lottery numbers, we’ve got a hunch about the League Cup action both tonight and tomorrow which might be worth a flutter.

England’s second domestic cup competition might be seen as a nuisance by some Premier League bosses but in reality it’s usually an absolute goal fest.

At this stage of the tournament last season we saw a massive 50 goals in 16 third-round fixtures at an average of 3.2 goals a game.

Why the League Cup is always a huge goal fest

  • Last season saw an average of 3.2 goals a game in the third round
  • Second-string players looking to impress
  • Gung-ho tactics when teams are losing

Why?

Well the nature of the competition sees a far more gung-ho approach to games.

If a side is losing in the last 20 minutes, expect managers to switch to ‘ultra attacking’ when they might be more reluctant in a traditional league format which makes matches far more open affairs.

The top clubs also tend to field second-string sides packed with players chomping at the bit to impress when their opportunities in the league are limited.
