Gustavo Alfredo Neffa Rodríguez (born 3 November 1971 in Asunción) is a retired footballer from Paraguay.

He started his career on Olimpia Asunción, and at the age of 18, noted by Juventus, Neffa moved on loan to Serie A club U.S. Cremonese, where he failed to make his breakthrough. He returned in South America in 1992, playing for

Unión de Santa Fe, Boca Juniors and Estudiantes, before leaving football and marry tennis player Rossana de los Ríos, who gave him a daughter. He also made a short comeback as a player/coach to Dallas Burn in 2000, just appearing on one pre-season match. He also appeared at the 1992 Summer Olympics in the Paraguayan football team, playing a single match against Ghana; it was during this experience that Neffa met his future wife Rossana.

Italian musician Neffa took his name as a homage to Gustavo. Today they are known to be good friends
