Jorge Andrés Carrascal Guardo (born 25 May 1998) is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Argentine club River Plate on loan from Karpaty Lviv.

Club career[edit]

Born in Cartagena, Carrascal was a Millonarios youth graduate, after starting it out at CD Heroicos.[1] He made his professional – and Categoría Primera A – debut on 9 November 2014 at the age of only 16, coming on as a late substitute for Luis Hernán Mosquera in a 0–1 away loss against Deportes Tolima.[2]

Carrascal only appeared again 7 November 2015, again from the bench in a 0–2 loss at Independiente Medellín. His first (and only) start for the club came on 17 March 2016, in a 2–0 Copa Colombia home win against Bogotá.

On 25 May 2016 Carrascal moved abroad, signing a five-year deal with Spanish La Liga side Sevilla FC, being immediately assigned to the reserves in Segunda División.[3]
