MATCHDAY: Rayo Vallecano aims to end 11-match winless streak

A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Monday:

SPAIN

Rayo Vallecano hosts Valencia in the Spanish league looking to end an 11-match winless streak that marks its worst run in the competition since 2003. Its last victory was at last-place Alavés in December and it has lost six of its last eight league games. Ninth-place Valencia is unbeaten in five league matches, with three wins. Rayo is 13th, five points from the relegation zone.

ITALY

Sampdoria is in need of a win at Bologna to move further away from the relegation zone in Serie A. Samp has lost four of its last five matches and is seven points above the bottom three. Bologna is on a five-match winless run but will be buoyed by last weekend’s 0-0 draw against Serie A leader AC Milan.
