Bengtsson started his career in his home town club Malmö FF. He transferred to Superettan side Trelleborgs FF in 2006 after having failed to make into the first team at Malmö FF. Bengtsson made his professional debut for Trelleborg in 2006. During his time in Trelleborg Bengtsson also changed his preferred position from striker to central defender. With Trelleborg he won the Superettan title of 2006 as the club were promoted to the first tier of Sweden, Allsvenskan. Bengtsson played a further three seasons in Allsvenskan with the club before he departed for German side Hertha BSC in the summer of 2009.
In August 2009, Bengtsson transferred to Hertha BSC on a three-year contract. Prior to signing with Hertha, it was claimed that he was close to signing with Italian club S.S. Lazio. Bengtsson later declared he had no interest in signing for Lazio. When Bengtsson signed for Berlin it upset the Italian club, who claimed that he had already signed with them. Lazio took their case to FIFA. Bengtsson only spent one season at the German side as they were relegated from the Bundesliga at the end of the 2009–10 season.
Bengtsson signed with Dutch Eredivisie side FC Twente on 9 July 2010. He gained a more important role in the Twente defence in the 2012–13 season after having played more sporadically during his first two seasons at the club. Bengtsson was chosen as Twente's club captain in July 2013 ahead of the 2013–14 season. During his time at Twente, Bengtsson has also played in the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Champions League.
During the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in Sweden, Bengtsson played all Sweden's four matches from start together with Mattias Bjärsmyr. His first cap for the Swedish senior national team came in a friendly against Mexico in January 2009.
