I always wondered this in passing.

For example the Norway Cup which is currently being played.  These teams for Norway easily score 5-6-7+ goals in almost every game. Do they just have REALLY bad goalies?

I mean obviously every team tries to score goals, but these guys have balls flying in left and right.. If you have a halfway competent goalie he is not going to allow 5+ shots in the net almost EVERY other game??

and the thing that really baffles me is that it happens to many many team, but always in certain leagues.. do they play on a kid sized pitch?!?!?

This happens in cup play cause in early stages of cups, teams from top divisions play against lower divisions hence the big difference in skills, experience and depth. For example we see norway's top team Rosenborg beat 7-0 Harstad (3rd div). As the cup advances the top teams will meet and scoring will lower down. As for high scoring leagues you can count on Eredivisie, Bundesliga and Brasileirao. Low scoring French, Italian, Argentinian.
