Diego Mateo Alustiza (born 7 August 1978 in Roldán, Santa Fe) is an Argentine footballer who currently plays for Newell's Old Boys as a defensive midfielder.

Mateo started his professional career in 1996 with Newell's Old Boys, where he made over 100 overall appearances, scoring four goals in the league. In 2000 he joined U.S. Lecce in Italy, but left the club after making only two first-team appearances.

In 2001, Mateo moved to Spain, where he would spend a great portion of his career: first, he was instrumental in helping Racing de Santander return to the first division, netting four times in 32 matches; being relatively used in the following two La Liga campaigns. In January 2005, he moved again to the second level, playing for Real Valladolid.

Mateo returned to Argentina for a spell at San Lorenzo de Almagro, then went again to Spain and its second division, signing with Hércules CF.

Between 2007 and 2009 Mateo played for Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy but after their relegation at the end of the 2008-09 season he returned to his first club Newell's Old Boys.
