In this paper we prove a sufficient condition for the existence of matchings in arbitrary groups and its linear analogue, which lead to some generalizations of the existing results in the theory of matchings in groups and central extensions of division rings. We introduce the notion of relative matchings between arrays of elements in groups and use this notion to study the behavior of matchable sets under group homomorphisms. We also present infinite families of prime numbers p such that Z/pZ does not have the acyclic matching property. Finally, we introduce the linear version of acyclic matching property and show that purely transcendental field extensions satisfy this property.
