Tissone was born in Quilmes, Buenos Aires Province. He started his football career in Independiente's youth system before moving to neighbours Lanús. After making only one appearance for Lanús, Tissone was scouted by Italian side Udinese, joining the club in 2004 and making 30 appearances for the club, mainly as a substitute. In 2006 he was signed by Atalanta in co-ownership deal.
On 22 July 2009 Tissone joined Sampdoria in a co-ownership from Udinese, for €2.5 million cash + Jonathan Rossini. He remained at the club for two seasons, appearing in 52 league matches and scoring once (against Brescia on 1 May 2011).
Tissone featured regularly with the Balearic outfit during the 2011–12 campaign, and returned to Samp in June 2012. On 29 January 2013 he returned to Mallorca, on loan until June. After the latter's relegation Tissone moved to fellow league team Málaga CF in a three-year deal on 6 July 2013.
Tissone's brother, Christian, is also a footballer, but spent the vast majority of his career representing Italian lower division sides, and also switched his nationality to Cape Verde.
