Cristian Pasquato (born 20 July 1989) is an Italian footballer who plays as a Midfielder. He is currently under contract with Legia Warsaw.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Padua, Pasquato began his career in the youth ranks of Padova at age six. After just one season with his hometown club, however, he joined the youth setup of Montebelluna, where he ultimately would remain until 2003, when he was scouted out by Juventus officials.


Pasquato officially joined Juventus in July 2003 and instantly earned early comparisons to club legend Alessandro Del Piero, most notably due to their origins at Padova, but also due their similar field positions and free-kick abilities. In 2006, Pasquato reached the Primavera team after winning the Allievi title. Being a free kick specialist, Pasquato scored the winner against Internazionale in the Supercoppa Primavera final.[1] After six years in the Juventus youth sector, Pasquato began to earn senior call-ups from coach Claudio Ranieri during the 2007–08 Serie A season, and made his first team debut on 11 May 2008, the final matchday of the that season, as a second-half substitute. Following the Primavera final, Pasquato was promoted to the first team.

Pasquato continued with the Juventus first team during the 2008–09 pre-season and impressed throughout the summer. He also competed with the team in the UEFA Champions League.

Loan Deals[edit]

On 24 August 2008, it was confirmed that Pasquato had signed for Serie B side Empoli on a one-year loan deal.[2] With the Tuscan club, Pasquato made 23 league appearances and scored one goal in his first full season in the professional leagues. On 1 July 2009, he returned to Juventus, though his loan with Empoli would be extended for one more season soon after. During the andata of the 2009–10 Serie B campaign, Pasquato managed just nine league appearances, scoring one goal.

Because of his lack of match time, Juventus recalled the young forward back to Turin during the 2010 January transfer window before ultimately re-loaning the player back to the second division with Triestina. During his loan with the club from Trieste, Pasquato made 16 league appearances and scored one goal. His efforts were not enough to save the club from relegation to the Lega Pro Prima Divisione at the end of the season.

After returning to Juventus on 30 June 2010 following the expiration of his six-month loan deal with Triestina,[3] Pasquato was again loaned out, this time to Modena, another Serie B club. He spent the entire 2010–11 season at Modena, scoring nine goals and notching 13 assists in 40 league games for the club. After the highly productive season with the gialloblu, Pasquato returned to Juve once more, and after training with the first team for the entire pre-season and competing in several summer tournaments and friendly matches, it was believed that the youngster would remain in Turin under new coach Antonio Conte. On 26 July 2011, Pasquato notably scored the winning goal for Juventus in a 1–0 win over América in the 2011 World Football Challenge. Pasquato began the match as a starter on the left-wing of Conte's 4–2–4, and scored a brilliant volley past Armando Navarrete after 42 minutes of play. The match was held in New York at CitiField.

On 31 August 2011, Pasquato was once again sent out on loan by Juventus: he was loaned to fellow Serie A club Lecce – along with teammate Manuel Giandonato – on a season-long loan.[4] He was, however, recalled from his loan period at Lecce on 27 January 2012 due to limited play time. He was loaned out to city-rivals Torino in the Serie B just two days later, on 29 January 2012.[5]


On 30 June 2012, Pasquato returned to Juventus, although the club sold half of his registration rights to Udinese for €1.5 million as part of a deal that also saw Kwadwo Asamoah and Mauricio Isla move from Udinese to Juventus, also in co-ownership deals.[6]

Bologna (loan)[edit]

Pasquato was then immediately sent on loan by Udinese to Bologna, where he teamed up with former Juve teammates Marco Motta, Michele Pazienza and Frederik Sørensen.[7]

On 17 June 2013, Udinese and Juve renewed the co-ownership agreement of the player, with Udinese continuing to hold onto his registration rights.

Padova (loan)[edit]

On 8 August 2013, Udinese loaned Pasquato to Serie B club Padova.

Return to Juventus[edit]

On 20 June 2014, Juventus confirmed the outright purchase of Pasquato from Udinese on a three-year contract for €1.5 million fee.[8][9]

Pescara (loan)[edit]

On 1 September 2014, Pasquato was signed by Pescara.[10]

Livorno (loan)[edit]

On 31 August 2015, Pasquato was signed by Livorno on loan.[11]

Krylia Sovetov (loan)[edit]

On 10 August 2016, Pasquato joined Russian club Krylia Sovetov on a season-long loan.[12] He also added one more year to his current contract with Juventus (to 2018).[13]

Legia Warsaw[edit]

On 19 July 2017, Pasquato joined Polish Ekstraklasa side Legia Warsaw.[14]

International career[edit]

Pasquato has represented Italy at every youth level, from under-15 to under-21. On 25 March 2009, he made his debut with the Italy U-21 squad in a friendly match against Austria.
