Brassard emerged through S.L. Benfica's youth ranks, but was soon deemed surplus to requirements, making his professional debuts with lowly Louletano Desportos Clube. In the following years he played with C.S. Marítimo, Gil Vicente FC (two spells) and Vitória de Guimarães.
In the 1995 summer Brassard returned to Benfica for two unassuming seasons, as he had to settle with battling for backup status behind Belgian Michel Preud'homme. He then played one year with Varzim SC – starting but seeing his side be relegated from the first division – closing out his Vitória de Setúbal at only 29, being again second-choice during three years.
Brassard was in the squad for both of Portugal winning teams in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, in 1989 and 1991, being part of the dubbed Golden Generation. Alongside João Vieira Pinto he was the only player in the world to win the tournament twice, although he did not play one second in the former edition.
In 2003, shortly after his professional retirement, Brassard joined the senior national team's coaching staff, working with the goalkeepers for several years.
