Club career[edit]

Born in Villa Florida, Misiones, Camacho was a Libertad youth graduate. He made his first team debut during the 2007 season, appearing in five matches.

In 2009 Camacho was loaned to fellow Primera División side Rubio Ñú, for one year. He scored his first senior goal on 22 November, netting the first in a 2–0 home win against 2 de Mayo.[1]

Camacho scored 11 goals for Rubio Ñú during the 2010 campaign, with his side achieving an impressive fifth position. On 16 February 2011 he moved abroad, signing for Argentine Primera División side Newell's Old Boys.[2]

After being sparingly used, Camacho switched teams and countries again, joining Colombia's Deportivo Cali on 12 August 2013.[3] The following year, he returned to his first club Libertad.[4]

On 31 July 2015 Camacho moved to Campeonato Brasileiro Série A side Avaí.[5] He contributed with 12 appearances and one goal, suffering team relegation.

On 20 January 2016 Camacho moved back to Paraguay and joined Guaraní.[6] He finished the year with a career-best 18 league goals, as his side was crowned champions.

International career[edit]

On 24 August 2010 Camacho was called up to Paraguay national team by manager Gerardo Martino for friendlies against Japan and China.[7] He made his full international debut on 4 September, starting in a 0–1 loss against the former in Yokohama.[8]
