Madrid: Pedro Rodriguez scored a hat-trick as Barcelona maintained their 100 percent start to the La Liga season with a comfortable 4-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

The Spanish international rewarded the visitors' bright start when he slotted from after some brilliant play by Lionel Messi on the half hour mark.
