Watford 2-3 Bristol City,Isaac Success Assist Too Little

Watford were the only Premier League casualty in the Carabao Cup following Tuesday’s Round 2 fixtures across England.

The Hornets slumped to a shock 2-3 defeat at home against Bristol City to exit the competition at only the first hurdle, with the top-flight teams having entered the tournament at the second round.

The Sky Bet Championship side came from behind to eliminate the premier league club in a tie where all the five goals came in the second half after a less entertaining first half.
Nigeria attacker, Isaac Success made an immediate impact after replacing Amrabat to setup Capoue in the box as the midfielder fires past Fielding two minutes into the second half.

Bristol City equalized through a fine Hinds strike from 25 yards nestles into the bottom corner on the hour mark and the away side will take the lead seven minutes later as Reid converts from close-range after a swift counter-attack.

Watford came close to leveling matters when Success crosses for Richarlison, whose header strikes the woodwork on 69th minute but things got from bad to worse when Holebas was shown a second yellow card for a trip as City threatened to break away with two minutes left.

Bristol City put the match to bed when Eliasson controls and slots past Gomes to add a another in the third minute of stoppage time but Mariappa heads one back for the Hornets with the last attack of the match.

Subs: Pantilimon (GK), Britos, Cathcart, Chalobah, Cleverley, Success, Gray.
