In some sports, two teams compete against each other for a set amount of time (e.g. soccer, basketball) or another fixed quantity (like baseball). In those sports, do men's teams score more points on average (against each other) than women's teams, or vice versa? Or is there not any noticeable difference?
For example, take the last editions of the FIFA (soccer) World Cups for women:
and for men:
The women score more goals per match than their male counterparts. Is this common throughout football, or just a coincidence? And how about other sports?
If there are any sports where women's matches last longer/shorter than men's, e.g. 30 minutes instead of 40, I'd expect the statistics to compensate for that; it's really the 'goals per minute' that I'm after.
