Leonel Eduardo Pilipauskas Rodríguez (born 18 May 1975 in Montevideo) is an Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Boston River mainly as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

In his country, Pilipauskas played for C.A. Bella Vista, C.A. Peñarol and Centro Atlético Fénix. This was punctuated by a spell with Spanish club Atlético Madrid in the 1999–2000 season, which was anything but successful (only four La Liga matches, relegation to Segunda División).[1]

In 2005, Pilipauskas moved to neighbouring Argentina, going on to represent Instituto Atlético Central Córdoba[2] and Club Atlético Platense, the former in the Primera División. He briefly returned to Fénix in between.

International career[edit]

Pilipauskas made four appearances for Uruguay during 1999, including two matches at that year's Copa América.[3] His debut came on 17 June in a friendly with Paraguay, in Ciudad del Este.
