Rafael Benitez's reign as Real Madrid boss got off to a poor start as his side of star names were held 0-0 by newly promoted Sporting Gijon Sunday.Los Blancos are already two points behind Barcelona as the champions exacted revenge for their Spanish Super Cup defeat to Athletic Bilbao thanks to Luis Suarez's solitary second-half strike.In Bilbao, Lionel Messi's troubles from the penalty spot continued as he saw a first-half spot kick saved by Gorka Iraizoz.However, his strike partner ensured that miss didn't prove costly as Suarez volleyed home early in the second half to hand the champions all three points.The game burst into life when referee Carlos del Cerro Grande controversially pointed to the spot when Suarez went down under a challenge from Gorka Elustondo.The Argentine has now missed five penalties for club and country in the past year and failed to find the net in 14 of the 63 penalties he has taken for Barca.
