Raúl Fernando Saavedra (born 8 March 1978 in San Miguel de Tucumán) is an Argentine football defender who plays for Concepción FC.


Saavedra started his playing career in 2000 in the Argentine 2nd division with Atlético Tucumán. Two years later he joined Quilmes and won promotion to the Argentine Primera with the club in 2003.

In 2005, he joined San Lorenzo but he returned to Quilmes after only one season. Following Quilmes' relegation the following season he joined Olimpo who were relegated the following season. In 2008, he joined newly promoted San Martín de Tucumán. On 23 November 2008 he scored his first goal for San Martín, a long range equalizer against Boca Juniors in a 1-2 defeat.[1] However, Saavedra suffered another top flight relegation with San Martín at the end of the 2008–09 season.

Nonetheless, he returned to San Martín after suffering his fourth top flight relegation in a row while at Atlético.
