Darwin Daniel Machís Marcano (born 7 February 1993) is a Venezuelan footballer who plays for Spanish club CD Leganés on loan from Granada CF as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Machís started his career with AC Mineros de Guayana, making his official debut on 21 August 2011, coming on as a substitute in a 1–1 away draw against Estudiantes de Mérida, for the Venezuelan Primera División championship. He scored his first professional goal ten days later, in a 5–1 home routing over Minasoro FC. Machís appeared regularly for the side, scoring 16 goals during the campaign (eight only in Copa Venezuela), and was awarded a prize from the Venezuelan Football Federation.

On 7 July 2012 Machís joined Udinese,[1] but signed a five-year contract with fellow Giampaolo Pozzo's club Granada CF.[2] He appeared in the pre-season with the latter, scoring three times in only five games.

Machís made his La Liga debut on 20 August 2012, as a late substitute in a 0–1 loss at Rayo Vallecano.[3] He appeared in further three matches for the Andalusians, all from the bench.

On 31 January 2013 Machís moved to Vitória S.C. on loan until June.[4] However, he appeared sparingly with the main squad, appearing with the reserves in the second level.

He returned to Granada in the 2013 summer, being assigned to the B-team in Segunda División B. On 8 May 2014 he joined Hércules CF in a month's loan.[5]

On 6 August 2015 Machís moved to SD Huesca, in a season-long loan deal.[6] Roughly one year later, he joined CD Leganés in the top tier, again in a temporary deal.[7]

International career[edit]

Machís debuted with the Venezuela national team on 22 December 2011, starting in a 0–2 loss against Costa Rica.[8] He later appeared with the under-20s in 2013 South American Youth Championship.
