两个队的分数_都很_近. The spaces are where words/phrases are supposed to go. Are there such words that fit in these spaces? I've been going through google trying to find similar sentence structures but to no avail. Any help is appreciated!
shall work. however, this will imply that each team has multiple scores (like score for goals, for shots, for passes, etc.) and all scores are close.
两个队的分数都很接近 already makes sense to me, and doesn't specify whether each team has multiple scores or not. However, it seems that you need another word or phrase between 都 and 很.
If they do have multiple scores, the example that @siyi gave would work.
If not, you could try 两个队的分数其实都很接近, where 其实 means "actually".
