Álvaro Rodríguez Brachi (born 6 January 1986) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Slovenian club NK Domžale as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Spain[edit]

Born in Seville, Andalusia, Brachi only played lower league football in his country, representing the reserve teams of both Real Betis and RCD Espanyol.[1]

He only competed two seasons in Segunda División B, being relegated in 2007–08 and 2009–10 with Espanyol B.[2]

Anorthosis / Videoton[edit]

In the 2010 summer, Brachi joined Anorthosis Famagusta FC on loan. His debut in professional football took place on 29 August, as he came on as a late substitute in a 3–2 away win against Alki Larnaca F.C. for the Cypriot First Division.

Subsequently, Brachi spent four years in Hungary at the service of Videoton FC, signing at the same time as compatriot Héctor Sánchez. He was regularly played by Paulo Sousa[3]– 39 games in his first two years in the Nemzeti Bajnokság I combined – but, after his replacement with fellow Portuguese coach José Gomes, became a fringe player.

Brachi left Videoton on 30 June 2015.[4]

Domžale[edit]

Brachi signed for NK Domžale in January 2016, after responding to an advertisement the Slovenian club posted on LinkedIn.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Brachi's father, Gabino Rodríguez, was also a footballer. He too played for Betis.[6]
