Hi teachers,


The match between Pakistan and India was well contested. Correct?


Many thanks.

It sounds strange to me.

It's too tame for me.

Matches between Pakistan and India are contested fiercely and aggressively — sometimes violently.

It would still sound a bit noncommital. I'm not sure how to interpret 'well contested'. If it means both sides were trying to win, you could say that about most games and matches.
