Born in João Pessoa, Paraíba, Otávio finished his development at Sport Club Internacional after joining the Porto Alegre club’s academy at the age of 15. He made his Série A debut only two years later, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–0 home draw against Santos FC on 15 July.[3]

Otávio’s first league goal arrived on 8 June 2013, when he started and helped to a 2–2 away draw to Cruzeiro Esporte Clube.[4] He added a further five during the season, in a 13th-place finish.

Otávio credited manager Dunga for helping him overcome his weight problems. During his spell at the Estádio Beira-Rio, he netted seven times in 62 competitive matches.[2]

On 1 September 2014, even though it was originally thought the transfer had cost 5 million, Otávio joined FC Porto as a free agent after Internacional ceded his federative rights, and signed a five-year contract with a €50 million buyout clause.[5][6] He was initially assigned to the reserve team, who competed in the Segunda Liga.[7]

In the last day of the 2015 January transfer window, Otávio, Ivo Rodrigues and Leocísio Sami were loaned to Vitória S.C. in the Primeira Liga.[8] He made his debut in the competition on 8 February by playing 30 minutes in a 0–1 home loss against C.F. Os Belenenses,[9] and scored his first goal in the last matchday of the campaign to help the visitors beat Académica de Coimbra 4–2.[10]

The deal was extended for the entire 2015–16,[11] and his performances while on loan earned him a contract extension with Porto subsequently.[12] He made his competitive debut for the latter on 12 August 2016, starting in the 3–1 away defeat of Rio Ave FC.[13][14]

Otávio won the Portuguese League at the end of his second season, contributing two goals from 15 appearances.[15] He was sidelined for several weeks during the tournament, due to injury problems.[16][17]

During the 2019–20 campaign, Otávio featured in 48 games and scored two goals, helping the team conquer the double.[18] As a result, he was included in the league’s Best XI.[19]
