Times change

Many say that now, the gaps between European football teams became so thick, that small squads don’t even exist anymore. Well, that is not quite true, because we can often see crushing scores, but not as ones that used to happen in the past. So, because of that, we can agree that our days’ football is much even than the one played a couple of decades ago.

To prove the words above, let us watch a list of all European matches in which a team scored at least ten goals:
