by raul.san@sent.com:

The use of "match" in documentation[1] could cause confusion.

Related: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/golang-nuts/bt5FzMrOAIQ

As speter is suggesting,  "the result is empty" would be less confusing, and
more consistent with both common SQL terminology and the rest of the godoc.

Comment 1:

The OP's problem was, I beliveve, rooted in misunderstanding SQL, not in the wording of
the docs for Scan, which are IMO both clear and correct. Suggesting to close w/o changes.
