He also made two substitute appearances in Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League play in the Quarterfinals against Club América.

With the exception of a short loan stint in 2016 with Ferroviaria, he spent his entire career with Athletico Paranaense, professionally debuting in the Campeonato Paranaense in 2015. He then made his debut in Brazil’s top Division, Serie A, on July 30, 2016 against Sport Recife. Overall, he made 71 appearances in Serie A, scoring five goals.

Rossetto helped the club win Copa Sudamericana for the first time in its history in 2018, where he made three starts. He also made 11 appearances with seven starts during the 2017 Copa Libertadores where Athletico Paranaense reached the knockout round.
