Javier Magro Matilla (born 16 August 1988 in Quero, Toledo) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder.
After finishing his football formation at Villarreal CF, Matilla made his debut for the main squad on 4 April 2009: he started and finished the La Liga away game against UD Almería, but his team lost 0–3. In addition, he played three full seasons with the reserves, one in Segunda División and two in Segunda División B.
On 28 June 2011, Matilla signed for Real Betis, freshly returned to the top flight, for 3+1 years and €1.3 million. He made his official debut on 18 September, coming on as a substitute for Beñat Etxebarria in the dying minutes of a 3–2 away win against Athletic Bilbao.
Matilla was irregularly put to use during his four-and-a-half-year tenure in Andalusia, for example contributing with 15 games and one goal as the club promoted from the second level in 2015. In the 2012–13 campaign, also in that tier, he scored a career-best 12 goals whilst on loan to Real Murcia, including one in a 1–0 home triumph over UD Las Palmas in the last matchday that certified survival.
In mid-October 2013, Matilla's contract was further extended until 2017, but it was mutually terminated on 15 January 2016 as the player was still nursing a serious knee injury. Subsequently, he went on trial with English Championship side Reading, but nothing came of it.
On 6 July 2016, Matilla signed for Elche CF in the second tier.
