Matthieu Dreyer (born 20 March 1989) is a French football player who currently plays as a goalkeeper for Caen.
Dreyer began his career in Alsace playing for local club AS Ernolsheim/Bruche. In 2003, he moved to the famous Sochaux academy. During his youth career with Sochaux, he won the Coupe Gambardella in 2007. Dreyer was listed as the 3rd goalkeeper for the 2007–08 season and appeared on the bench several times including two UEFA Cup matches, though he didn't make an appearance. He signed his first professional contract following the season agreeing to a three-year deal. Dreyer was officially promoted to the senior squad and given the number 30 shirt, the common number for the third-choice goalkeeper in France.
For much of the 2008–09 season, Matthieu played in the CFA helping the Sochaux reserves finish a respectable 6th. He made his professional debut on 28 February 2009 starting in goal, ahead of 2nd choice Jérémy Gavanon, for the injured Teddy Richert against Nice. For his efforts, Matthieu earned a clean sheet in a 1–0 victory with Václav Svěrkoš scoring the lone goal.
After one season in the French National championship (third division), he joined Troyes AC as a second choice keeper.
Matthieu has been a France international since age 12 when he earned caps with his local regional sides, Bas-Rhin and Alsace, in the Predator Cup. He has featured with the U-15s, U-16s, U-17s, and the U-18s. On 25 May 2009, he was selected to the under-20 squad to participate in the 2009 Mediterranean Games.
