Football career

Born in Lisbon, Rafael spent six years with local Sporting Clube de Portugal – youth years comprised – but never represented its first team officially. On loan, he made his senior debuts in the third division, spending one season apiece with Casa Pia A.C. and Real Sport Clube (both in the Lisbon area) and being released by the Lions in 2007.

Subsequently, Rafael signed for Portimonense S.C. in the second level, being first-choice in his first season and regularly used in the following. In 2009–10, he made his Primeira Liga debut with Académica de Coimbra, his first appearance in the competition being on 13 September 2009 in a 1–2 away loss against S.C. Olhanense; he only missed four league games as the Students easily retained their division status.

In the ensuing off-season, Rafael followed manager André Villas-Boas to FC Porto. He rarely made the list of 18 in the first months at his new club, but profitted from a run of injuries in the first team to gain more playing time. On 29 January 2011, he scored in a 2–2 draw at Gil Vicente F.C. for the campaign's Portuguese League Cup, but also sustained an horrific last-minute injury to his foot, being sidelined for well more than one year; he finished his first year with the northerners with 11 competitive games, scoring two goals.

In January 2013, Rafael signed with S.C. Braga, joining until the end of the season with the possibility of a three-year extension. After his contract expired, he moved to Platanias F.C. in the Superleague Greece; however, just six months later, he returned to Portugal and agreed to one-and-a-half-year deal with G.D. Estoril Praia.

On 8 June 2015, free agent Rafael rejoined Académica for two years.
