Omar Oreste Corbatta Fernández (11 March 1936 - 6 November 1991) was an Argentine footballer who played as a forward.

Dubbed Arlequín and El dueño de la raya (The chairman of the sideline), he played for five teams in his country - six in total - namely Racing Club and Boca Juniors, winning four major titles and scoring 86 official goals with both teams combined.

An accomplished penalty kick taker and widely regarded as the best Argentine right winger of all time, Corbatta gained more than 40 caps for the national team in the 50's/60's, and represented the country at the 1958 World Cup.
