Marc Cardona Rovira (born 8 July 1995) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker for CA Osasuna.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lleida, Catalonia, Cardona moved to the Province of Cádiz at early age, and represented Atlético Sanluqueño CF, Xerez CD and San Benito CF as a youth.[2][3] In 2014, he returned to Sanluqueño, and made his debut for the club on 24 August 2014 by coming on as a second half substitute in a 0–3 Tercera División away loss against CD Alcalá.

Cardona appeared rarely for the first team during his first season, playing regularly with the reserves in Primera Andaluza. In his second, he was a key player in Sanluqueño's promotion to Segunda División B, scoring a career-best 20 goals; highlights included a hat-trick in a 5–1 home rout of Sevilla FC C on 24 January 2016.[4]

On 29 June 2016, Cardona joined FC Barcelona, and was immediately assigned to the reserves in the third division.[5] He made his debut for Barça B on 20 August, scoring a hat-trick in a 3–1 home win against Atlético Saguntino.[6]

Cardona helped the B-side achieve promotion to Segunda División in 2017 by scoring 15 goals. He played his first match in the second division on 19 August of that year, starting and scoring his team's second in a 2–1 away win against Real Valladolid.[7]

On 19 July 2018, Cardona was loaned to La Liga side SD Eibar for one year, with a buyout clause.[8] On 31 August he played and scored the equalizer in a 2–1 home win against Real Sociedad.[9]

On 25 June 2019, Cardona joined fellow top tier side CA Osasuna until 2023.[10]
