Reina's form and stature were enough to ensure that Cavalieri remained on the bench most of the time the following season, with his only starts being against Leeds and Arsenal in the League Cup, a Reading replay in the FA Cup and the final Champions League group match with Fiorentina, by which time Liverpool had already been eliminated from the competition. Cavalieri featured in both of Liverpool's third qualifying round matches of the Europa League against Rabotnicki at the start of the 2009/10 season. On 23 August 2010 he moved to newly-promoted Seria A side, Cesena, to play first-team football on a regular basis. Cavalieri spent six months at Cesena where the coach elected to play a 41-year-old veteran ahead of him. At the end of December 2010 and shortly after his twenty-eighth birthday, Cavalieri returned to his homeland to sign for Fluminense. He played a key role in the club's Brazilian Championship title win in 2012.
Towards the end of 2012 Cavalieri played for the full Brazilian team for the first time in a 2-1 defeat in Argentina. He was also selected to play against Chile in a home international in April 2013, a match which ended in a 2-2 draw. He continued to be a regular first-choice in Fluminese's goal for most of 2013 and was also a member of the Brazilian squad that competed in the 2013 Confederations Cup, which was held in the country of his birth. He did not see any game-time in that tournament though because both he and Jefferson were back-ups to Brazil's regular goalkeeper, Julio Cesar. His club appearances decreased in the early part of 2014 so it wasn't a major surprise that he did not make his country's World Cup squad, but he remained at Fluminese for 2014 and 2015. After leaving there in 2017 he joined Crystal Palace on a short term deal in March 2018 until the end of the season. He was an unused substitute five times and after being without a club for the first half of 2018-19 joined Rio side Botafogo in the January transfer window, where he had to settle for being back up keeper.
