Joel Gustavo Acosta (born 16 January 1991 in Villa Gobernador Gálvez) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a midfielder for Argentine Primera División club Aldosivi.[1][2][3]

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Acosta made his professional debut for Boca Juniors on 24 October 2010 in a league game against Independiente Avellaneda. He came on as a substitute for Lucas Viatri in the 88th minute. The game ended 0-0.[2][3] A little less than a year later, Acosta joined Italian Serie A club Siena on loan. His spell with Siena was unsuccessful as he failed to make an appearance and only made the club's bench on two occasions; both in the Coppa Italia.[2] Shortly after returning to Boca, he was loaned out again as he agreed to join Primera B Nacional side Almirante Brown. He made his debut on 12 August 2012 versus Independiente Rivadavia. He made 25 appearances in all competitions for Almirante Brown before going back to his parent club.[2] In the year and a half later, he played seven times for Boca in the Argentine Primera División. 2015 saw him join Olimpo on loan, he featured 25 times for Olimpo before departing.[2][3]

In January 2016, Acosta left Boca Juniors and signed for Italian Serie B team Pescara.[2] His first appearance in Italian football came on 12 February in a 1–1 draw against Vicenza. He participated in nine league matches for Pescara as the club won promotion to Serie A.[2] Despite this, Acosta left Pescara soon after 2015–16 to return to Argentina to join Primera División club Aldosivi. He scored his first goal for Aldosivi in October 2016 versus San Martín.[2][3]
