Héctor Horacio Leonel Scotta Guigo (born 27 September 1950) is a retired Argentine football striker. He was born in the city of San Justo in the Santa Fe Province of Argentina. Scotta is most famous for his feat of scoring 60 goals in 1975.

Scotta started his career in 1970 with Unión de Santa Fe but after only one season he moved to Club Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro where he was part of the Nacional winning team of 1974. In 1975 Scotta was the topscorer of the Nacional championship with 28 goals and Metropolitano champion with 32 goals, this made him the topscorer in South America and in world football for 1975. Scotta was awarded the Olimpia de Plata as the Argentine sports writer's footballer of the year. During 1975, Scotta broke Arsenio Erico's single-season Argentine Primera División goal-scoring record with 48 goals.[1]

Scotta's goalscoring achievements of 1975 attracted the attention of a number of foreign clubs, the team that managed to sign him was Grêmio in Brazil, where he helped them to win the Campeonato Gaúcho in 1977.

In 1979 Scotta returned to San Lorenzo, he then had a season with Ferro Carril Oeste in 1980, another with San Lorenzo in 1981 and a final season at the top level of Argentine football with Boca Juniors. He also played for Sevilla FC.

Scotta later had spells with 2nd division outfits Nueva Chicago, All Boys and Deportivo Armenio.
