Matías Héctor Sebastián Urbano (born 16 February 1981 in Cipolletti, Argentina) is an Argentine striker who currently plays for Unión San Felipe in the Chilean Primera División.

Urbano began his career in his hometown playing for Club Cipolletti. He made his debut in first division with Talleres de Córdoba in 2001. He later moved to Colombia where he played for Real Cartagena before migrating to Ecuador to make appearances in the Serie A for Macará and consequently Deportivo Quito. In his first return to Argentina, he signed for San Lorenzo de Almagro, but he was relegated to the bench, playing only in one league game for the cuervos. Struggling to get notice he finally decided to leave the club, and relocated to Mexico where he played for Club León during 2004 and Cruz Azul Oaxaca in 2005. His good performance awoke the interest of Chilean club Deportes La Serena, which signed him for the 2006 season. The following year, he continued playing in Chile for Everton.

In 2008 he transferred to Colombian team Cúcuta Deportivo where he also played in Copa Libertadores scoring 5 goals. In 2009 Urbano joined San Martín de Tucumán making his third spell in the Argentine Primera, but after a few time he joined the Italian team Aurora Pro Patria 1919.

Urbano earned global recognition after scoring an "rabona" goal against Unión La Calera. Six days after his extraordinary goal, he repeated the "rabona" shot, scoring this time against Deportes Iquique.
