Meanwhile, reigning champions Real Madrid dropped points for the second game in a row as Ivi's early opener earned Levante their share of the spoils from a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

Pique made it 4-0 with a header three minutes to the end of the match after outjumping Mario Hermoso and beating goalkeeper Pau Lopez.

Espanyol haven't won a Catalan derby since 2009, but did have their chances to get back into the game as Pablo Piatti struck the post and then fired inches wide either side of half-time.

But the Argentinean Wizard didn't stop there, he went-on to complete his hat-trick after the break from another Alba cross, putting Barca in a commanding position.

His biggest highlight came on Barcelona's fifth goal of the night, when Dembele broke free down the right before rolling a ball across for Luis Suarez to slide home.
