Braulio Nóbrega Rodríguez, simply known as Braulio (born 18 September 1985), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Johor Darul Takzim II F.C. in the Malaysia Premier League, as a forward.
Braulio was born in Puerto del Rosario, Canary Islands. Having grown through the youth system of Atlético Madrid, he played 11 La Liga games for the Colchoneros between 2004–06 (ten being in his debut season) before being loaned to RCD Mallorca (January–June 2006) and second division's UD Salamanca in 2006–07, where he finished the season as the team's top scorer.
Braulio was loaned again in the 2007–08 campaign, this time to Madrid side Getafe CF, where he teamed up again with Manu del Moral who had played with him in Atlético's youth squads. On 25 October 2007 he scored a marvellous backheel goal in the group stage of the UEFA Cup, in a 2–1 win against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. He also netted the third and final goal for Getafe in the competition's quarterfinal second-leg match against FC Bayern Munich, capitalizing on a defensive mistake by Lúcio in the box and proceeding to put the ball past Oliver Kahn, in a 3–3 home draw (4–4 aggregate loss).
On 28 June 2008 Braulio signed a four-year contract with Real Zaragoza, freshly relegated to the second level. He was relatively used as the Aragonese were immediately promoted to the top flight, but then suffered an injury which sidelined him for several months; upon return in late 2009 he found himself without room in the first team and, on 23 January 2010, was loaned to Recreativo de Huelva, as another forward, Adrián Colunga, moved, in the same predicament, in the opposite direction.
In January 2012, after being released by Zaragoza and sorting out his legal problems, Braulio joined FC Cartagena in division two. He scored six goals in only four 1/2 months, not enough however to help the Murcian club avoid relegation; in July he joined another team in the category, Hércules CF.
On 21 September 2011 Braulio was arrested on a charge of sexual assault, which occurred in a town near Zaragoza – Cuarte de Huerva – shortly before Real Zaragoza's morning training. He was not incarcerated immediately, and the following day pleaded guilty, being ousted from the squad until the situation was cleared and released by the club the following month.
On 18 October 2011 Braulio changed his plea to "not guilty," citing poor advice as the reason for this sudden change. Finally, on 22 June of the following year, he avoided a prison sentence and reached an agreement to pay €11,400 in damages.
