Matteo Guardalben (born 5 June 1974 in Nogara, Province of Verona) is an Italian football goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

After 5 seasons with Parma, Guardalben (along with Nicola Mora and Matuzalém) joined Piacenza in a co-ownership deal. Half of Guardalben's rights was valued for 3 billion lire.[1]

Guardalben was exchanged with Cristiano Lupatelli in January 2006.

Guardalben signed a 3-year contract with Vicenza of Serie B in July 2006,[2][3] as Adriano Zancopè's backup, but he was injured in October[4] and back to squad in May 2007.[5]

In the next season, he became the first choice since November 2007, until February 2008 the arrival of Marco Fortin.

In summer 2009, he was signed by Serie A club U.C. Sampdoria as third-choice keeper, and never played a single game during his stay with the blucerchiati. On July 2010 he was signed by Serie B club Modena in a free transfer.

International career[edit]

In 2005, Guardalben was called up three times by the Italy national football team, all as unused substitute.
