Tell me please if there is any difference in meaning between the following sentences.

The team has been awarded more penalty kicks in the last 10 years than any other team.

The team has been awarded more penalty kicks over the last 10 years than any other team.

Being a non-native English speaker it is undescribably hard to see any difference, so I doubt there is any.

Check this this answer. To sum up, the difference can be better seen in the following sentences (also from the answer mentioned):

I got my driver's license in the last year,

but I learned how to drive properly over the past three months.


IN can be used mostly for discrete events, whereas OVER can be used for continuous cases.
