Joaquín Oscar Larrivey (born 20 August 1984) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Rayo Vallecano.

He is nicknamed el Bati, for his physical resemblance to former footballer Gabriel Batistuta. Larrivey also holds a European Union passport as a second nationality.[1]


Larrivey began his career in Argentina with Huracán and quickly became an important player for the side. Larrivey was signed by Italian Serie A side Cagliari in June 2007 on a 4-year contract.[2] On 12 February 2009 Vélez Sársfield of Argentine Primera División signed him on loan until the end of the season.[3] He started successfully at Vélez scoring in his debut game against Tigre. He also scored against Godoy Cruz and Rosario Central. However, after this last one (which was in the 7th game of the Clausura tournament) he was held scoreless. On 1 July 2009, Larrivey returned to Cagliari. On 5 August 2010, he was loaned to Club Atlético Colón.[4][5]

In 2011, Joaquin Larrivey returned to Cagliari again, this time to take a first team place. After the departure of Alessandro Matri who was sold to Juventus F.C. and Robert Acquafresca who returned to Genoa after his 1 year loan, Larrivey and Nenê became the first choice strikers. He was assigned the number 9 shirt before the beginning of the season.[6] On 21 August 2011, Larrivey scored a hat-trick in a 5–1 win over U.C. AlbinoLeffe in the Coppa Italia, becoming only the second player to do so in the history of Cagliari, together with legend "Gigi" Riva.[7]

On 17 December 2012 Larrivey was presented as a new player for Mexican club Atlante. He was signed to form the attack with Chilean Esteban Paredes. On 27 January 2013 he scored his first goals with the club recording a brace against Chiapas in a 4-3 victory.
