Football career[edit]

Born in Balcarce, Buenos Aires, Azcárate moved as a youngster to Spain, first representing lowly FC Cartagena. In 2003, he joined newly promoted club Real Murcia, but would only appear in nine games in two seasons combined, the first spent in La Liga[1][2] and the second in the second division.

From 2005 to 2007, Azcárate represented Atlético Madrid, but never made it past its B-team which competed in the third level.[3] After spending an unassuming campaign in Greece with AEK Athens F.C. he returned to Spain, joining division three's Polideportivo Ejido.[4]

In 2010, after two seasons in Andalusia, Azcárate switched to another team in that tier, CD Leganés. He was released at the end of 2011–12.
