Renan Bardini Bressan (Belarusian: Рэнан Бардзіні Брэссан; born 3 November 1988 in Tubarão) is a Brazilian-born naturalized Belarusian footballer who is currently playing for Rio Ave. [1]


He has played for FC Gomel since April 2007. On 28 January 2010, he signed with BATE Borisov.[2]

Bressan scored 15 goals during his first season with BATE, becoming the top scorer in the Belarusian Premier League for the 2010 season.[3] He was also selected as the best midfielder in the league for the year.[4]

On 2 October 2012, Bressan scored BATE's third goal in their 3–1 shock defeat of Bayern Munich in the second game of the Champions League group stage.[5] In late November 2012, Russian Premier League club Alania Vladikavkaz acquired the services of Bressan.[6] In October 2013, Bressan unilaterally terminated the contract because of gross violations of financial terms of the agreement by the club.[7]

On 15 January 2014, Bressan signed a two-year contract with FK Aktobe,[8] but less than a month later his contract was mutually terminated on 7 February. Bressan went on to sign a two-year contract with FC Astana on the 10th on the same month,[9] but was released from his contract on 12 July after only 7 games for the club.[10] On 2 August 2014, Bressan signed a two-year contract with Portuguese Primeira Liga club Rio Ave.[11]

International career[edit]

He also has Belarusian citizenship[12] and is eligible to play in official competitions for the national team since April 2012.[13] He made his debut for Belarus national football team on 29 February 2012 in a friendly match against Moldova. During the football tournament of the 2012 Summer Olympics he was one of three overage players selected by the Belarusian federation and scored the only goal for Belarus U-23 in a 1–3 loss against the country he was born in – Brazil.
