Guillermo Barros Schelotto (born 4 May 1973) is a former Argentine football forward.

Barros Schelotto, nicknamed "Guille" or "Melli" (short for "mellizo", Spanish word for "twin"), played 16 years of his professional career in the Argentine Primera División (6 with Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata and 10 with Boca Juniors). With these two teams, he won a total 17 official titles (one with Gimnasia and 16 with Boca).

In 2007, Barros Schelotto left Boca Juniors for Columbus Crew in the Major League Soccer, therefore having his first experience outside his native country. The forward won another 3 titles in the United States' team, as well as two individual awards.

Barros Schelotto is planning his return to Columbus, Ohio to begin work with his new soccer academy. The Schelotto and Padula Soccer Academy is a partnership with former Columbus Crew teammate and fellow Argentinian Gino Padula.
