The 2018-19 Carabao Cup got underway on Tuesday night with a new set of rules that mean there is plenty of penalty shootout drama.

With no extra-time in the competition, any match that ends in a draw after 90 minutes goes straight to penalties and there were nine shootouts on Tuesday alone.

There is one more first round match to play and then the remaining two Championship sides and the majority of Premier League teams enter the fray in the second round.

Here is when the draw will take place and which teams and when the games will be played…

The draw takes place ahead of the final first round game, which is between Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday, 16 August.

The match kicks-off at 7.45pm so we can expect the draw to take place between 7pm and 7.30pm, broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football.
