Roberto Fernández Alvarellos (born 25 January 1979), known simply as Roberto, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Lugo as a goalkeeper.
Roberto was born in Chantada, Lugo. After several years struggling at Celta de Vigo, never making it past its B-team, he moved to Sporting de Gijón in 2002. Save for his first season, when he was backup to Juanjo Valencia, he was an undisputed starter during his entire stay, winning the Ricardo Zamora Trophy in the 2005–06 campaign by conceding only 31 goals in 38 games, whilst going unbeaten for 825 minutes with the Segunda División club.
In June 2008, after playing in all the league matches but one to help Sporting return to the top division after a ten-year absence, Roberto also moved to La Liga, signing a three-year contract with CA Osasuna. After starting his first year on the bench, he eventually beat competition from veteran Ricardo (formerly of Manchester United) and became first-choice, but lost it again in the 2009–10 season, appearing almost exclusively in the domestic cup – he played the last two rounds in the league, with the Navarrese already safe from the relegation zone.
On 14 July 2010, Roberto was released by Osasuna and signed a three-year deal with Granada CF, returned to the second level after 22 years. He only missed two games in the regular season in his first year, then starred in the play-offs in an eventual second consecutive promotion for the Andalusians.
Roberto was first-choice in three of the four following seasons, all spent in the top flight. He signed for CD Lugo on 17 July 2015, after his contract expired.
