Barcelona have risen above Real Madrid to the top of La Liga after recording a 6-0 victory over Copa del Rey final opponents Alaves on Saturday afternoon.

Luis Suarez scored twice for the Catalan giants, while efforts from Neymar, Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and an own-goal from Alaves defender Alexis made it a miserable 90 minutes for the home side.

The win has taken the reigning champions to the summit – two points ahead of Los Blancos – but Zinedine Zidane’s side now have three games in hand, starting with a trip to Osasuna on Saturday night.
