The Catalan giants continued to dominate in the second stanza while the likes of Messi and Suarez squandered chances in the opening 10 minutes.

- Espanyol have gone 17 games without a win against Barcelona in La Liga (D3 L14), their worst run without a win in the Catalonian derby. "Espanyol fought very well, but we have great players like Messi, who scored three goals, and [Luis] Suarez, who gave everything like the rest of the team".

Messi fed Suarez, who in turn laid the ball out to Alba on the overlap down the left and his cut-back was coolly dispatched into the bottom corner by the Argentinian. "Game-by-game he keeps showing that Messi will be around for a long time to come". Gerard Pique headed in a fourth goal.

Saturday is likely to see the debut of Barcelona's record signing Ousmane Dembele, while the much-questioned arrival Paulinho is also likely to make his first appearance on home turf in the game, reports Xinhua news agency.

Easy as can be, and Barca looks to be just fine.

Suarez's goal was met with chants for club president Josep Maria Bartomeu to resign.

"We can't be happy with our performance", said Real manager Zinedine Zidane.

"We are at the beginning of the season and the distances are not significant, but it is better to be ahead than behind", Valverde said.

The hosts were dealt another blow midway through the first half as Karim Benzema limped off.

Ernesto Valverde's men now have a four-point lead over their rivals and Suarez feels each point is important as the title race can get close.

Goals from Ganso, Wissam Ben Yedder and Nolito saw Sevilla claim a 3-0 win over Eibar at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan.
