Born in Araxá, Minas Gerais, Neto was installed as Atlético Paranaense's first-choice goalkeeper for the 2010 Brazilian Série A season. After being sent off in the first match of the campaign and serving a two-match suspension, he returned and started every game for the club until October, when he was forced to miss several games after being called up for the Brazil national team.
On 3 January 2015, Fiorentina issued a statement that Neto would not extend his contract with the club.
Neto was in the Brazil squad for the 2012 Olympic tournament, playing in their two opening group stage wins over Egypt and Belarus before being replaced by Gabriel as the nation went on to win the silver medal.
