Club careerEdit

Born in Santo Tomé, Mauro graduated from Banfield's youth setup, and made his professional debut on 22 June 2008, in a 2–3 away defeat against River Plate.[1] He was handed his first start on 26 October, in a 0–0 draw at Gimnasia LP.[2]

After more than three full seasons with Banfield, Mauro moved abroad, signing a one-year deal with Real Murcia.[3] He made his debut for the club on 21 August 2012, against Córdoba CF.[4] On 24 July of the following year, Mauro renewed his link with the Pimentoneros for a further year,[5] and scored his first professional goal on 29 September, the first of a 2–1 home win against CD Numancia.[6]

On 22 July 2014 Mauro signed a one-year deal with La Liga side UD Almería.[7] He made his debut in the competition on 23 August, starting in a 1–1 home draw against RCD Espanyol.[8]

Mauro scored his first goal in the Spanish top level on 21 September, netting his side's second in a 2–1 away win against Real Sociedad through a header.[9] On 21 July 2015 he moved to fellow league team SD Eibar, after suffering relegation with the Andalusians.[10]

On 11 July 2017, Mauro signed a two-year contract with CD Leganés, still in the top tier.[11] On 26 December 2018, he terminated his contract with the club,[12] and signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with CD Tenerife in the second division the following 8 January.[13]
