Career[edit]

On 9 December 2009, the goalkeeper left San Lorenzo for 500000 euros and joined Estudiantes de La Plata.[2]

On July 2011 Orion signed with Boca Juniors, where he won the 2011 Apertura.[3]

In 2013, Agustín received offers from important European clubs,[citation needed] but he decided to stay in Boca Juniors, because he is an important piece in the team and he loves the club.

On August 2016 Orion signed with Racing Club.
