Club career[edit]

Pavón played for CA Talleres U20s until 7 February 2012 where he signed his professional contract for the team. He did so at only 16 years of age.

Boca Juniors[edit]

On 9 July 2014, Pavón signed with Argentine club Boca Juniors for €1.3M. On 19 May 2016, Pavón scored a goal against Nacional in the 2016 Copa Libertadores; the match ended 1–1.[3]

Loan to LA Galaxy[edit]

On 8 August 2019, Pavón signed on loan with MLS side LA Galaxy for the remainder of the 2019 season, with the option to make the deal permanent.[4][5] On August 25, 2019, Pavón scored his first goal for the club against crosstown rival LAFC in a 3–3 draw.

International career[edit]

At international level, Pavón represented the Argentina under-23 side at the 2016 Summer Olympics. In 2017, he was selected to the Argentina national team for friendlies against Russia and Nigeria. He had an impressive debut against Russia, assisting Sergio Aguero on the only goal of the game. He made another assist for Aguero to score against Nigeria in a game that ultimately ended in a 4–2 loss.

In May 2018, Pavón was named in Argentina's preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia;[6] later that month, he was included in Jorge Sampaoli's final 23-man squad for the competition, and was assigned the number 22 shirt.[7]
