Saturday's victory means Barca have dropped just two points all season and are yet to concede a goal in their first seven league matches, reports Xinhua.
Rayo began well but committed the serious mistake of pushing their central defenders forward to the half-way line where they were exposed to the pace of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Munir.
Rayo paid the price when first Messi and then Neymar scored in quick succession in the 35th and 36th minutes.
Messi opened the scoring moments after he had seen a goal ruled out for offside. Neymar doubled the lead with a low right footer after being set up by Munir.
