Aldo Antonio Bobadilla Ávalos (born 20 April 1976 in Pedro Juan Caballero) is a Paraguayan retired football goalkeeper.



Bobadilla started his career at Paraguayan club Cerro Porteño already in the junior league, he was trained by Modesto Sandoval that is how he got the skills to play in the pro team some years later, then moved to Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata of Argentina. He returned to Paraguay to play for Club Libertad until mid-2006, when he signed for Argentine Boca Juniors.

Though he started the last season as the first-choice goalkeeper for Boca Juniors, he lost his place to Caranta after his rival's good performances in friendly matches.

In early September 2007 he signed a contract with Colombian side Independiente Medellín helping the team overcome the problem they had in the previous season by being the team with the most goals scored against.

Early in 2011, Bobadilla signed a two-year contract with Club Olimpia of Asuncion.

International career[edit]

Bobadilla was part of the Paraguayan national football team that competed in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He went as a substitute and was not expected to play. However, Bobadilla had to replace starting goalkeeper Justo Villar after Villar's injury in the first match, against England.
