Club careerEdit

Born in the village of Infantas in Guimarães, Oliveira joined Vitória SC's youth system at the age of 9. On 18 August 2012 he made his professional debut in the Segunda Liga with the reserves, coming on as a substitute after Assis Giovanaz was sent off late into the first half of an eventual 0–1 away loss against Sporting CP B.[1]

For the 2017–18 season, Oliveira was promoted to the first team in the Primeira Liga as third-choice, behind Brazilian Douglas and fellow youth graduate Miguel Silva.[2] On 31 January 2020, he was loaned to second division club Leixões S.C. until 30 June.[3]
