2016–17 Taça da Liga

The Taça da Liga (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈtasɐ dɐ ˈliɣɐ]), known outside Portugal as the Portuguese League Cup, is a football cup competition organized by the Liga Portuguesa de Futebol Profissional (LPFP) that is contested by the clubs competing in the Primeira Liga and Segunda Liga, the top two tiers of Portuguese football.[2] Unlike the French and English league cups, the winners do not qualify for European competitions.

The competition was established in the 2007–08 season,[2] after a proposal by Sporting CP and Boavista. It was approved by LPFP member clubs at a meeting in Porto, on 28 November 2006. Due to sponsorship reasons, it was known as Carlsberg Cup during the first three seasons, and as bwin Cup in 2010–11. From the 2015–16 season, it will be known as Taça CTT. Most of the participating clubs take the chance to rotate their main squad and give opportunities to youngsters.

The current holders are Moreirense who defeated Braga 1–0 in the 2017 Taça da Liga Final to secure their first title in the competition.

Format[edit]

The Taça da Liga format has suffered changes every season since the competition's debut in order to increase the number of matches and also revenue for both clubs and LPFP. Since the 2015–16 season, the approved format is the following:

  • First Round – One-legged ties between all Segunda Liga teams (except reserve or B teams), with the winner advancing to the next round. In case of an odd number of participating teams, one team receives a bye to the next round.
  • Second Round – One-legged ties between the first-round winners, the twelve Primeira Liga teams ranked 5th–16th in the previous season, and the two teams promoted from the Segunda Liga. The winner advances to the next round.
  • Third Round – Four groups of four teams played in a single round-robin format, each containing three second-round winners and one of the four top-placed Primeira Liga season teams of the previous season. The group winners advance to the next round.
  • Knockout phase – Semi-finals and final played as one-legged fixtures played in a neutral ground.
