Worthington Cup Semi Final


Tonight in the Coca Cola Cup Semi Final Bradford host a struggling Aston Villa. After embarrassing Arsenal can Bradford pull off another huge shock and make it to the Carling Cup Final?

Aston Villa have fielded a strong team for this Littlewoods Challenge cup game with Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor and N'Zogbia all starting. Surely it is a matter of how many? Or can Bradford pull off one of the biggest shocks in Capital One Cup history by reaching the Final as a League 2 team.

@slufsar I think the fact that they change main sponsors every few years and, therefore, change the name of the competition makes it a bit of a joke. It should just be The Football League Cup sponsored by so and so.

@Baldersmith That's wrong mate. If the winner is already in Europe, the remaining spot goes to the 6th in EPL.

@James2504 If you win the Capital One Cup you qualify for Europa League (Liverpool last season). But if you lose and the winners have already qualified for Europe through their league position the runner up goes into Europe. If both teams in the Carling Cup final qualify for Europe through league positions then the team in 6th qualify as well.

@Italian_Celt67 I didn't say they didn't deserve it. I said it would be embarrassing.

@Baldersmith No, thats just in the FA Cup. In League Cup the place then goes to the 6th placed club in PL
