Born in Buenos Aires, Álvarez began his career at Club Atlético Lanús in the Argentine Primera División in 1998. He also had a short spell with Arsenal de Sarandí before moving to Spain with Racing de Santander, where he played three seasons with average impact, with a six-month loan stint with second division side Córdoba CF in between.
After another loan in the Spanish second level (with CD Tenerife) Álvarez returned to Santander, appearing in 23 matches in 2006–07 as the Cantabria side finished 10th. In the following campaign he signed permanently with Córdoba for two seasons, with the Andalusians eventually barely maintaining their division two status.
In the 2009 off-season, after helping Córdoba finish mid-table, 31-year old Álvarez returned to his country and a former club, signing with Arsenal Sarandí.
