Born in the Porto neighbourhood of Bairro do Cerco, Machado joined FC Porto's youth system at the age of 14, and made his first-team debut in the 2003–04 edition of the Portuguese Cup, under José Mourinho. In the summer of 2005 he signed an improved contract until 2010 along with teammate Bruno Vale, before both went on consecutive loans to C.F. Estrela da Amadora and U.D. Leiria.

In the following two years, Machado was loaned again, to Leixões S.C. and Ligue 1's AS Saint-Étienne respectively. Alongside teammates Diogo Valente and Vieirinha, also loaned by Porto, he was instrumental as the Matosinhos side retained their Primeira Liga status at the season's close.

On 10 July 2008, Machado was loaned to the French club as part of the deal that brought Colombian Fredy Guarín to Porto. He adapted well, becoming an integral part of Saint-Étienne's season, scoring twice in his first 16 games – 12 as a starter – and only missing three league matches in the campaign as they narrowly avoided relegation.

On 2 July 2009, Toulouse FC signed Machado to a four-year deal. On 10 August 2012, after three seasons in which he averaged 30 games and four goals, he joined Olympiacos F.C. in Greece for €2,700,000 penning a 3+1 contract. He scored his first goal for his new team on 3 November, also providing an assist in a 2–0 home win against OFI Crete FC.

On 4 June 2014, Machado joined GNK Dinamo Zagreb on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee. On 28 July 2015, during a UEFA Champions League play-off round against Molde FK at Stadion Maksimir, club fans booed him as he walked off the pitch while being substituted after a poor performance. In return, he made several obscene gestures for which he received a straight red card, being subsequently suspended by the club until further notice.

On 2 September 2017, free agent Machado signed with recently promoted C.D. Aves until the end of the season.

International career

Machado was part of the Portugal under-21 team at the 2007 UEFA European Championship. Previously, he won the Under-17 European Championships in 2003.

On 30 September 2010, Machado was called up for the first time to the senior side by newly appointed coach Paulo Bento. He did not make his debut in either of the two UEFA Euro 2012 qualifiers that were scheduled, but later spoke of his smooth integration into the squad and his ambition to eventually earn a regular place in the national team. On 17 November he finally made his debut, coming on as a substitute for Nani in the dying minutes of a 4–0 friendly win over Spain, in Lisbon.
