During most of his career in his homeland, Rio de Janeiro-born Cássio played mostly for modest clubs. He did however represent Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama during four Série A seasons, playing 35 games in 2006 to help his team to the sixth position.
In 2008, Cássio moved to Portugal and joined F.C. Paços de Ferreira, being first-choice during most of his spell with the Primeira Liga side. He was also the starter during the 2010–11 edition of the domestic League Cup, where his team lost in the final against S.L. Benfica.
Cássio did not miss one single minute of action in the 2012–13, as Paços finished a best-ever third and qualified to the UEFA Champions League for the first time in its history. He only conceded 29 goals during the season, notably keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 home win over Sporting Clube de Portugal.
