Casto Espinosa Barriga, Casto (born
18 June 1982in Badajoz, Extremadura), is a Spanish football player who currently plays for Real Betis Balompiéin " La Liga", as a goalkeeper.
Casto spent three years at
Mérida UD, making 7 league appearances. In 2003 he moved to CD Logroñéswhere he spent one season, before moving on to Albacete Balompié. Real Betispurchased Casto in 2006, where he began as third-choice goalkeeper, behind Pedro Contrerasand Antonio Doblas.
With the arrival of Portuguese Ricardo at Betis, it seemed as though Casto would be provided with little opportunity to shine, even with Contreras' departure. However, after a serious injury to Doblas, Casto was called up from the B team. After Ricardo also went down with a minor ailment, Casto debuted in
La Ligaon December 16, 2007, against UD Almería.
On March 2008, Casto, who eventually overtook Ricardo as first-choice after the latter's recovery, featured in Betis' first three back-to-back victories in over two years, with wins over
CA Osasuna, FC Barcelonaand Real Zaragoza. In his first five games, Betis won four, with Casto keeping clean sheets in three.
