Marcelo began the La Liga season with a clean sheet as Real tied 0-0 Sunday with Sporting Gijon.

Gijon had no shots on target all game thanks to a sturdy defense composed of Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane ad Danilo. Marcelo was also given opportunity to go foward on several occasions but none of his four crosses could be converted. The biggest chance then actually fell to the Brazilian himself but his late diving header was sent over the bar.
