Oscar Pezzano (1948 - 19 February 1994) was an Argentine football goalkeeper, notable for his years in Estudiantes de La Plata.

Pezzano started his career in Buenos Aires minor-league club Sacachispas, and joined Estudiantes in 1970. He was the goalkeeper in two significant international matches against Feyenoord in 1970 and against Nacional de Montevideo in the 1971 Copa Libertadores decider played in Lima, Peru.

Pezzano remained in Estudiantes (with a short stint in Vélez Sársfield during 1973), where he played 349 matches, making him the goalkeeper with the most appearances for the team. His signature jersey color was pink, leading to his nickname "the pink panther".

After the 1980 campaign, Pezzano played for other clubs in Argentina and Ecuador, and retired from active play in 1985. He remained in football, mostly coaching provincial teams.

While living in Carhué, Buenos Aires province, where he was coaching a local team, Pezzano was stabbed to death on 19 February 1994, while trying to mediate in a dispute outside a night club.
