Marc Pedraza Sarto (born 6 February 1987) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Numancia as a midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Pedraza was a product of local RCD Espanyol's youth ranks. He spent his first senior season with the B-team, in Segunda División B, scoring ten goals but also being relegated. In the following year he upgraded to Segunda División and was loaned to Deportivo Alavés, appearing sparingly as the Basque also dropped down a level.

Returning to his native region, Pedraza continued to be mainly associated with Espanyol's reserves. On 2 January 2010 he played his first and only La Liga match, coming on as a substitute for José Callejón in the last minute of a 0–1 away loss against Valencia CF.[1]

In the 2010 summer Pedraza was released by Espanyol but, in October, signed with another club in his native region, third division's CE L'Hospitalet.[2] After three full seasons he returned to level two, joining CD Numancia on a two-year contract.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Pedraza's father, Ángel, was also a footballer. A defender and midfielder, he played professionally for FC Barcelona and RCD Mallorca, going on to coach his son at Hospitalet in one match.[4]
