Pique: We are at top but the league is very long

Gerard Pique has warned his team-mates against the dangers of complacency after Barcelona moved top of La Liga on Sunday. The Catalans routed Rayo Vallecano 6-1 at Camp Nou, courtesy of a hat-trick from Lionel Messi, two from Luis Suarez and a goal from the defender himself. The result sees Luis Enrique's side climb above Real Madrid, who were beaten 1-0 by Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, but Pique is adamant his side have achieved nothing yet. "It's something we are not too concerned with," he told Canal Plus after the match. "We are top, but the league is very long. Being leaders doesn't mean we've won anything. It's the result of a long road which we hope won't come to an end yet. "We started well, we had a break, but now we're back and we're fine. Now we're in good form. That's more important at the moment than being top. "I'm sure we'll drop some more points during the rest of the season, but we must try to make sure we lose less and are top at the end of the season." Barcelona face a trip to Eibar in the next game in six days' time. Barcelona 6-1 Rayo Vallecano - Watch Pique goal
