FC Barcelona have broken a Spanish record that stood for 27 years as they continue their 35 match streak without a loss.

Luis Enrique’s side thrashed Rayo Vallecano 5-1 with goals from Ivan Rakitic, Arda Turan and a hat-trick from Lionel Messi. They now sit eight points clear at the top of the table, with Atletico Madrid in second place and Real Madrid in third place.

"I'm pleased with how the season has progressed," said Enrique.

"There is attitude, intensity and finishing. When Barca manages to be like that, you create danger from the first minute and it's hard to stop them."

Barca continue their league campaign away to Eibar this Sunday.
