Guido Hernán Pizarro Demestri (February 26, 1990) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Liga MX club Tigres UANL.

A midfielder, Pizarro is known for breaking down opposition plays due to his positional sense, pressure, defensive attributes, tactical intelligence and for his ability to command the attack from the center of the pitch. Nicknamed "Conde" (Spanish for Count), he is a naturalized citizen of Mexico.[1]


Pizarro made his professional debut in his native Argentina with Club Lanús in 2009. In July 2013, he was transferred to Mexico side Tigres UANL. With Tigres, he lost the finals of the Mexico Apertura 2014 season and of the 2015 Copa Libertadores. A key player in Tigres, his team won the Mexico Apertura 2015 season championship.

International career[edit]

In 2016 Pizarro was named in the preliminary Argentina squad for Copa América Centenario, but was not included in the final squad.[2] He was called up once again in November to play against Brazil and Colombia but did not see any action. Pizarro made his official debut starting against Bolivia at La Paz on 28 March 2017.
