Hugo Mariano Pavone (born 27 May 1982 in Tres Sargentos, Buenos Aires) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Cruz Azul in the Liga MX, as a striker.

Club career


Pavone left his childhood club Boca Juniors at the age of 14, and went on to feature for Estudiantes de La Plata in the Argentine first division during seven years (11 comprising youth). His most notable achievement there was scoring 16 goals in the Clausura 2005, being crowned the competition's top scorer.

Pavone was selected by sports newspaper Olé as the best player in the 2006 Apertura tournament, where he scored Estudiantes's first goal against Quilmes Atlético Club and also the side's last which secured the 2–1 win over alma mater Boca in the final. All in all, he scored 11 goals in this stage, but also excelled at assisting his teammates, as in the fifth goal against Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata in the 15 October derby.


Pavone signed for Real Betis in late June 2007.1 The player, who was on his honeymoon in the city of Seville, was purchased by for €6.8 million, becoming the first signing under compatriot Héctor Cúper's management. On 23 July, he scored on his debut, a friendly game against neighbours CD San Fernando, also assisting fellow Argentinian Juan Pablo Caffa.

Pavone's competitive debut came in La Liga on 26 August, against Recreativo de Huelva. In his first two seasons, he failed to impress, but had a good run from November 2007 – January 2008, when he netted six goals in five matches, including braces against Real Zaragoza (a 2–1 win, as a late substitute)2 and UD Almería (a 3–1 win).3

Pavone only scored twice in 2008–09, and Betis returned to the second division after nine years. He was supposed to sign for Calcio Catania in Italy on 1 February 20104 but, due to Ewerthon's refusal to sign with the Andalusians in order to take his place, the deal was cancelled.

On 23 July 2010 Club Atlético River Plate and Betis arranged a one-year loan deal for Pavone, who returned to his country after three years.5 He scored five goals in the Apertura, helping the club climb out of the relegation zone.

River, however, would be scheduled to appear in the relegation playoffs against Club Atlético Belgrano. On 26 June 2011, after a 0–2 away loss, he scored in the first minutes of the game, but also had a penalty saved by Juan Carlos Olave, in an eventual 1–3 aggregate loss which sent the historical Buenos Aires outfit to the second level for the first time in its history.


On 5 August 2011, Pavone returned to his country and signed for Club Atlético Lanús on a free transfer.6 He made his debut on the 16th against Club Atlético Independiente, coming in at the 27th minute of the second half, and scoring the game's only goal in injury time.7
