Burnley 1 Sheffield United 1 (5-4 On Penalties)
By Burnley FC
September 18 2020
The Clarets held their nerve in a penalty shoot-out to end their Carabao Cup hoodoo and set up a third-round trip to Millwall.
Having won only one game in the competition since 2014, Sean Dyche’s men were up against it again when they fell behind to an early David McGoldrick goal and lost the luckless Johann Berg Gudmundsson to injury.
But in typical fashion, the Clarets showed they wouldn't give in and hit back to equalise through Matej Vydra’s second-half equaliser to level the scores at 90 minutes.
And Vydra was then on target again as Burnley made it a perfect five from the penalty spot to book their passage through and get the 2020/21 season off to a winning start.
Chris Wood, Josh Brownhill and Erik Pieters also scored.
