Born in Cali, Bernardo finished his football formation in Spain with Sevilla FC. After appearing in one game for the B-team in the 2007–08 season (five minutes) he proceeded to play a further three full campaigns with the B's, one in the second division and two in the third, only starting regularly in his last.
Bernardo made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 11 May 2011, playing 90 minutes in a 2–3 away loss against CA Osasuna. In the ensuing summer he was loaned to fellow top divisioner Racing de Santander, in a season-long move.
Bernardo scored his first top flight goal on 7 January 2012, heading home the game's only in a home win against Real Zaragoza. On 26 December, after not featuring at all for the Andalusians in the first half of 2012–13, he was loaned to Sporting de Gijón in the second level.
