Career[edit]

Levante[edit]

Born in Meliana, Valencian Community, Camarasa joined local Valencia CF's youth categories in 2001, aged seven. Ten years later he was released, and eventually finished his formation with neighbouring Levante UD, making his senior debuts with the reserve side in the 2012–13 season, in Segunda División B.[2]

On 7 December 2013, Camarasa played his first official game with the main squad, starting in a 0–1 away loss against Recreativo de Huelva for the campaign's Copa del Rey.[3] Two days later he signed a new six-year deal with the club,[4] and he scored his first goal on the 17th, helping turn the Cup deficit in his team's favour by netting the last in the 4–0 home win.[5]

Camarasa made his La Liga debut on 4 January 2014, coming on as a substitute for Simão Mate in a 0–2 away loss against Valencia CF.[6] In July he was promoted to the first team,[7] and was made a starter by new manager José Luis Mendilibar.

On 4 October 2014, Camarasa scored his first goal in the top flight, netting his side's second in a 3–3 draw at SD Eibar.[8] On 11 August 2016, after suffering relegation, he was loaned to Deportivo Alavés also in the top tier, for one year.[9]

Betis[edit]

On 29 June 2017, Camarasa signed a five-year contract with fellow league club Real Betis.[10] He scored his first competitive goal for them on 18 December, helping close a 2–0 away defeat of neighbouring Málaga CF.[11]

On 9 August 2018, Camarasa joined Cardiff City on loan for the 2018–19 season.[12][13] He made his Premier League debut nine days later, playing 76 minutes in a 0–0 home draw against Newcastle United.[14] His first goal came on 2 September, but in a 2–3 loss to Arsenal also at the Cardiff City Stadium.[15]
