Cartabia made his debut in La Liga on 17 August 2013, starting and playing 65 minutes in a 1–0 home win against Málaga CF. He scored his first goal(s) for the Che on 24 October, netting a brace in a 5–1 success over FC St. Gallen for the campaign's UEFA Europa League.
On 11 July 2014, Cartabia was loaned out to newly promoted Córdoba CF in a season-long deal with a buyout clause. He made his debut for the Andalusians on 25 August, coming on as a substitute for Daniel Pinillos in a 0–2 loss at Real Madrid; his first goal in the top division arrived five days later, as he scored his team's in a 1–1 home draw against Celta de Vigo.
On 30 July 2015, Cartabia was loaned to another club in the top division, Deportivo de La Coruña, for one year.
