In 1990–91, Caen took place in the first half of Division 1, thanks to the excellent results obtained in Venoix. However, the press revealed in late 1991 that the club was close to bankruptcy. Regional businesses and local government bail out the club, which carries a brilliant 1991–92 season. Stade Malherbe finished fifth and qualified for its first (and so far only) time for the UEFA Cup.
Stéphane Paille scored 15 goals during the season. For the first round of 1992–93 UEFA Cup, Caen had to face up to Real Zaragoza. Normans won 3–2 the 1st leg but lost 2–0 in Spain. Despite the goals of Xavier Gravelaine, SM Caen finished season to a relatively disappointing eleventh rank.
