Born in Camapuã, Mato Grosso do Sul, Lima started in Operário de Mato Grosso. After being top-scorer of the 1982 and 1983 Campeonato Sul-Mato-Grossense, he joined Corithians in 1984, who loaned him to Santos. In 1987, he moved to Grêmio, where he would take part in Campeonato Gaúcho titles in 1987 and 1988, being Top-Scorer in the latter, alongside Valdo, Cuca, Astengo and Mazarópi.
He then moved to Portugal, joining Benfica, where he would reunite with Valdo, playing sparsely throughout three seasons, but notably scoring three goals in the 1989–90 European Cup campaign, on the way to the final. In 1991, he signed with Internacional, winning another Campeonato Gaúcho, and then moving through a number of clubs, retiring at age 35.
