Maturity matching is to buy the bond with a maturity that is the same as your intended holding period.  For instance, you wish to invest in a bond for one year.  So you buy a bond with one year remaining until it matures.  (As opposed to buying a longer dated bond and selling it after a year, and before it matures.)
