AC Milan

Born in Sant'Angelo Lodigiano, Lombardy, Matri started his career at A.C. Milan (30km away from Sant'Angelo Lodigiano) and played his first Serie A match as starter on 24 May 2003, the 3rd last match of the season before the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final and 2003 Coppa Italia Final. The match Piacenza Calcio won Milan 4-2, as Milan rested almost all the regular starter. Matri scored nil that match, partnered with Michele Piccolo and replaced by Roberto Bortolotto in the 71st minute.[2] In the next season, he played all the time at Primavera (U20) Team and not played in the first team. In 2004-05 and 2005-06 season, he left on loan to Prato (along with Piccolo) and Lumezzane, played 64 Serie C1 matches.

In 2005-06 season, he left for Rimini along with Digão. Where they reached the 1st in the winter and finished 5th.


In June 2007, as part of David Suazo's deal to Milan, he left for Cagliari in co-ownership deal (Suazo eventually joined city rival Internazionale). He partnered with Robert Acquafresca, which Internazionale sent him to the Sardinia as part of Suazo's deal. The young strikers scored 16 goals for the team, ahead midfielder Pasquale Foggia and Daniele Conti (both 5 goals). Their replacement, Jeda and Larrivey, scored 3 goals in half season and 1 goal in full season respectively.

In the next season, Matri became the 3rd choice, as Jeda and Acquafresca netted more goals. But he also scored 6 goals in 31 matches, but only 11 of them as starter.

After the exit of Acquafresca, Marti became the starting pair along with Jeda, with new signing Nenê, the 2008–09 Portuguese Liga top-scorer, played as substitute. He is the team top-scorer, having scored 12 league goals, ahead Nenê (7 goals)and Jeda (6 goals).
