Machado was one of the victims when LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 crashed on 28 November 2016.
Born in Gravataí, Rio Grande do Sul, Machado represented Internacional as a youth but made his senior debut while on loan at Fluminense. He also played the first half of the 2005 season for Esportivo, again on loan.
On 8 August 2006, Machado left for Spanish club Pontevedra CF in Segunda División B. He was an undisputed starter as his club finished first in its group, but failed to achieve promotion in the play-offs.
In the summer of 2007 Machado joined Portuguese club U.D. Leiria, but after altercations with the club's manager, he left for Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia. Machado appeared in 37 matches for the club, contributing with 2 goals. He also scored the winning goal for CSKA Sofia against Levski Sofia in the Eternal Derby during their first meeting of the 2007-08 A PFG season. He stayed there until August 2009, contributing to the club's record 31st league title.
As a free agent, and following a trial period, Machado signed a 1+2-year contract with Serie B side Salernitana in August 2009. He was released in January 2010, and claiming to have unpaid wages.
Machado switched teams and countries again ahead of the 2010–11 campaign, joining Azerbaijani club FC Inter Baku. In February 2011 he moved to the United Arab Emirates for Al Dhafra SCC, but appeared rarely.
Machado became a first-choice upon arriving at Chape, and scored his first goal on 6 October 2016 in a 1–3 away loss against Atlético Paranaense. In his last match on 27 November, he was handed the captain armband in a 0–1 away loss against Palmeiras.
Machado was one of 71 fatalities on 28 November 2016, when Chapecoense were on route to the first leg of the 2016 Copa Sudamericana Finals to play against Atlético Nacional in Medellín. Shortly before the take off, he recorded a video to his official Instagram account, showing all the players and the staff inside the plane.
Following the tragic accident, Machado's former club CSKA Sofia announced that part of the ticket revenue from their upcoming Bulgarian First League fixture against Pirin Blagoevgrad would be donated to Machado's family. CSKA Sofia supporters also gathered to pay tribute to Machado and his Chapecoense teammates in front of the Brazilian embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria.
