Club careerEdit

Achucarro started out in the system of Boca Juniors, where he played at the 2011 U-20 Copa Libertadores.[1][3] He made two appearances in the 2009–10 season, against Arsenal de Sarandí and Banfield respectively which were his only matches in the Primera División; though he did feature in the Copa Argentina in March 2012 versus Central Córdoba.[1] Four months later, Achucarro was loaned to Douglas Haig.[1] Twenty-eight games and one goal, in a fixture with Crucero del Norte, came in Primera B Nacional.[1] He returned to tier one with Godoy Cruz in 2013, prior to securing loans away to Olimpo and Ferro Carril Oeste.[4]

2016 saw Achucarro depart Boca Juniors permanently to sign with Talleres.[1] Eleven appearances followed in the 2016 Primera B Nacional, which the club finished as champions to therefore win promotion to the Primera División.[1] He subsequently left on 20 July 2016, joining top-flight Temperley.[1][5] However, despite remaining for almost thirteen months, Achucarro didn't feature in any competitive fixture for the club.[1] A return to Primera B Nacional was completed in August 2017, with the defender agreeing a move to Nueva Chicago.[1] He made his debut on 2 October in a 2–0 victory over All Boys at the Estadio Nueva Chicago.[1]

On 11 June 2019, following two campaigns with Nueva Chicago, Achucarro went abroad for the first time after penning terms with Categoría Primera A side Cúcuta Deportivo.[6] His bow for the Colombian outfit arrived on 15 July, playing for the full duration of a 1–3 win over Rionegro Águilas.[1]

International careerEdit

Achucarro represented Argentina's U20s at the 2011 Pan American Games, appearing in three fixtures as they finished with the silver medal.[1] He had previously been called up for the 2009 Toulon Tournament.[7][8]
