They have been trying to recover the wizardry they lost from that point onward.
On Sunday, they visit Paris Saint-Germain, realizing that a rehash of the 1-0 triumph they appreciated in December would change the chance of turning out to be Ligue 1 bosses from a simple desire to an authentic change.
In Spain, in the interim, Benzema is giving it his best shot to keep Real Madrid serious. Presently 33, he keeps on being Los Blancos' hostile force to be reckoned with since the flight of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in 2018.
In every one of the two past crusades, he has scored 21 objectives in La Liga. This season, he is as of now up to 17 and is demonstrating moving as Madrid keep on fighting for flatware at home and abroad.
With their group trusts hanging by the equilibrium against Elche a weekend ago, he scored a course reading descending header then a splendid late champ to transform a 1-0 shortfall into an invaluable 2-1 triumph.
He got a pivotal opener in the Champions League against Atalanta as Madrid advanced into the quarter-finals and afterward, wearing the commander's armband, gotten a support in a 3-1 win away to Celta Vigo on Saturday.

His musings, however, will before long go to his tentative arrangements. Those at Lyon trust it will lead him back to his home city, where he got through the foundation and scored 64 objectives in 148 excursions - building up himself as a significant world star prior to moving to Spain.
The idea that he may one day get back to Lyon truly captured light again in January, when his previous specialist and close friend Karim Djaziri addressed Inside Gones.
"Will Karim Benzema get back to Lyon? Indeed, I think it'll occur," he said. "He addresses me routinely, and he observes every one of the matches. Furthermore, he's not yet visited the Groupama Stadium.
"There is everything at Lyon for Karim. He would not like to return to Lyon and not have his legs. He is conflicted between leaving the greatest club on the planet and getting back to Lyon. It's an issue of timing."
Lyon, in the meantime, have effectively connected – and they are obviously sharp for an arrangement to be finished.
President Jean-Michel Aulas revealed to RMC a month ago: 'I know there was a contact a year ago with [sporting director] Juninho. In the event that it's conceivable, clearly arrangements will be discovered to permit it to be finished.
"It would be a fantasy for every one of our allies however it shouldn't be done past the point of no return. Why not? Everything depends, I think, on the aftereffects of Madrid."
Maybe a more prominent driving component for any arrangement is less the outcomes that Los Blancos accomplish and more who they can sign to supplant their amazing old forward.
In the case of Erling Harland, for instance, was to show up in the late spring, Benzema, a four-time Champions League victor, is probably not going to kick his heels on the seat for a full season hanging tight for the most recent year of his agreement to lapse.
What's more, the Borussia Dortmund wonder is fervently connected to the club. For Benzema, however, such bits of gossip are simply clamored until further notice.
'I've been here for quite a while, and consistently we talk about strikers who could score objectives for Real Madrid,' he said. "Harland is a youthful player who scores a ton of objectives – there's nothing more to it.
"Also, in the event that one day he gets the opportunity to come to Madrid, and in the event that he needs to, he would go along with us. That is it."
With different regions in the crew to address, most quite in the wide assaulting zones, Madrid may feel they have diverse exchange needs this late spring, particularly if PSG's Kylian Mbappé goes ahead the market.
Lead trainer Zinedine Zidane, in the meantime, is plainly in no rush to offload Benzema.

"Since he joined Madrid in 2009, he has just improved. We don't have the foggiest idea when he will stop," the World Cup victor said.
Independently, Benzema does to be sure stay on track for maybe his most noteworthy mission ever, and as unfashionable as he might be, the void he would leave in assault would take some filling.
Lyon would joyfully greet him wholeheartedly. He is only the sort of player they could use in an experience like Sunday's. Also, he is only the kind of player who could help give a transient lift to their possibilities of trying for the title on a more ordinary premise.
