Andrea Masiello (born 5 February 1986) is an Italian footballer, who plays as a right-back for Atalanta. He is perhaps best known for match-fixing in the Derby of Puglia, whilst playing for Bari, scoring an own goal to guarantee Lecce survival in Serie A. He was banned 26 months for selling the matches Salernitana–Bari, Bari–Sampdoria, Palermo–Bari, Bari–Lecce and Bologna–Bari.

A graduate of Juventus' youth system, he made his Serie A debut for Juve, in a home defeat Inter, on 20 April 2005. Masiello joined Juventus on loan in 2003 from Lucchese and in January 2004, he turned to a co-ownership deal for €300,000. In June 2004 Juventus acquired him outright.

In the wake of the 2006 Italian football scandal Juve were forced to play in Serie B. Thus, the squad faced clearance in order to improve the financial condition. Masiello, along with Abdoulay Konko and Giovanni Bartolucci were now joint-owned by Siena and Juventus, which valued Masiello at €350,000, Konko at €500,000 and Bartolucci for a peppercorn fee of €500.

After failing to make an appearance in the first half of the 2006 season, Juventus sold 50% of its ownership of Masiello and Konko to Genoa on 25 January 2007, (which were previously owned by Siena and Juventus, after Genoa and Siena) worth €1.25 million (Masiello) and €1 million (Konko) respectively, for part of the deal of the permanent transfer of Domenico Criscito. He played 15 times and won promotion along with his team-mate.

Genoa and Siena were failed to make an agreement for the two players before the deadline, thus they had to submit a bid to Lega Calcio. Eventually Genoa acquired Masiello for €1.08 million and Siena acquired Konko outright for €823,787. However, in July Genoa acquired Konko outright for €1.2 million (with Fernando Forestieri moved to Siena for €1.7 million in co-ownership deal), but after playing 4 times for the club, he went back to Serie B to play for Bari on loan.


Masiello joined Bari in a co-ownership bid after the 2007–08 season, for €1.5 million. He was part of the team that won Serie B in 2009, so the club decided to buy him outright for another €800,000. After the season-ending injury of Andrea Ranocchia, he moved to centre-back from right-back. Masiello was a regular starter in the 2009–10 Serie A season.

After the departure of Ranocchia and Leonardo Bonucci, Bari failed to sign quality replacements. At first, he was the centre-back, as the team signed right-back Andrea Raggi, but in mid-season he was moved back to right-back. In January 2011 Bari signed centre-back Kamil Glik and after the departure of coach Giampiero Ventura, Masiello remained as the starting right-back and Nicola Belmonte became the usual centre-back under Bortolo Mutti. As Bari performed poorly in both attack and defence, the team finished bottom and were relegated to Serie B.

On 15 May 2011, in the 70th minute of the derby between Bari and Lecce, he deflected a shot from Lecce striker Jeda, into his own goal, thus ensuring Lecce's victory and survival in the Serie A. He later admitted to interviewers that he was offered at least €50,000 to turn the ball into his own net.


On 25 July 2011 Bari agreed to sell Masiello to Atalanta B.C. for €2.5 million cash plus Marino Defendi (tagged for €1 million). Bari also retained 50% registration rights of Masiello. He was presented on the next day. He scored his first goal for the club in a 2–2 draw with Fiorentina. After the expose of the betting scandal, Masiello was released by the club.
