Born on 25 February 1997, in La Plata, at the age of 8 he started at the Estudiantes Youth Academy in which he was formed while standing out in international tournaments. He was already known as ‘el rusito’. From very early on, he was characterized by his conviction, dedication and ambition to learn and improve, understanding the game and interpreting it from midfield.
He debuted with the first team of Estudiantes in February 2016, against Lanús and soon established himself in the starting XI. His adaptation to professional football was quick and in his first season in the first team under Nelson Vivas orders, he revealed himself as a footballer called to achieve great things. By then Ascacíbar had already completed his secondary education and had begun his anthropology degree. He is a person who firmly believes in the importance of getting formed beyond football.
In the 2016 Transition Tournament, he was the player who recovered the most balls and the second who gave the most passes. Reasons for being chosen as the best player by Estudiantes fans. That led him to Rio 2016, where he started with Argentina. He made his debut with the national team under Scaloni´s orders in the 3-0 victory against Guatemala. At the same time, Diego Simeone said about Ascacíbar: “He is the football player with the most projection and future in Argentine football”.
