Valencia, Zaragoza end Spanish league winless runs

PAUL LOGOTHETIS AP Sports Writer Published:

MADRID (AP) -- Third-place Valencia beat Sporting Gijon 4-0 Sunday for its first Spanish league victory in nearly two months, while last-place Zaragoza got a much-needed boost by beating Espanyol 2-0 for its first win since October.

Valencia's Sofiane Feghouli volleyed into the roof of the net in the 33rd minute before Sporting defender Alberto Botia redirected Feghouli's 73rd-minute strike into his own goal. Jonas scored twice in stoppage time.

Sporting is four points ahead of Zaragoza, whose first victory in 15 games came from second-half goals by Paulo da Silva and Juan Carlos Perez.

Malaga beat Mallorca 3-1 and Rayo Vallecano won against Getafe 2-0.

Leader Real Madrid can stretch its lead over Barcelona to 10 points later Sunday with a victory against Levante.
