Alex Sandro Lobo Silva, or simply Alex Sandro (born 26 January 1991), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Italian club Juventus and the Brazil national team as a left back. A quick, energetic and offensive minded defender who is also a strong tackler and a good reader of the game, Sandro is capable of playing anywhere along the left flank; he has also been used as a wing back and as a wide midfielder. He has been described as a player who is a "powerful runner, can beat opponents one-on-one and is an excellent crosser of the ball". His playing position and playing style have drawn comparisons with compatriot and 2002 FIFA World Cup-winner Roberto Carlos.

At club level, Alex Sandro began his career with Atletico Paranaense, and later also played for Santos on loan. In 2011, he joined Porto for €9.6 million, alongside teammate and countryman Danilo, who plays as a right back. He joined Juventus in 2015, winning the domestic double in his first season.

At international level, Alex Sandro also plays for the Brazil national football team, where he has gained 6 caps so far. At youth level, he also represented the Brazil national under-20 football team, winning both the South American Youth Championship and the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2011, as well as the Brazil national under-23 football team, with which he won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
