Four teams, A, B, C and D, played each other once in a league, then played a knockout competition. They scored a total of 54 goals in the nine games, with a different score in each game; no team scored more than five goals in any game. For each team the average number of goals per game was a different whole number. Team B beat D by a margin of more than one goal in the knockout competition, but team A took the double, winning all their games.
What was the score in the match CvD?

This one is hopelessly slow without the initial analysis to show what the average goals per game must be.
This shows that the CvD result is 5:5. Jim Randell has a football solver class in his enigma.py collection of puzzle solving utilities. But I dislike football teasers (almost as much as I dislike football) so I am not inclined to spend time understanding and using it or building my own equivalent.
