Club Deportivo y Mutual Leandro N. Alem is an Argentine football club, located in General Rodríguez, Buenos Aires Province. The team currently plays in the regionalised 4th level of Argentinian football Primera C Metropolitana.

The club was founded in 1925 by a group of dairy workers, and because of that, it was soon nicknamed El Lechero (The Milkman) although its denomination honoured Leandro Nicéforo Alem, an Argentine politician who was the founder and leader of the Unión Cívica Radical and also the uncle and political teacher of former President of Argentina Hipólito Yrigoyen.

Leando N. Alem used wears a uniform that is very similar to Boca Juniors, Argentine most popular football team.

In the 2001 Primera C Metropolitana Clausura tournament the club set an Argentine record for the worst performance in a short season. They obtained only 1 point from 17 games,[1] which led to their relegation to Primera D.
