Tiago André Coelho Lopes (born 25 July 1989), known as Rabiola, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for F.C. Paços de Ferreira as a forward.
Rabiola was born in Guimarães. A product of Vitória de Guimarães' youth system, he made his professional debuts in the 2006–07 season, helping the club return to the Primeira Liga with five games and one goal, which came in a 6–0 home routing of Portimonense S.C. on 6 May 2007.
Subsequently, bought by FC Porto on a three-year contract, with an option for another two, Rabiola spent the first half of the 2007–08 campaign on loan to Vitória, appearing again scarcely (four matches for the eventual third-placed team, and a goal as a late substitute against U.D. Leiria). He returned to Porto in January 2008, but waited 15 months to make his first league appearance for them, playing one minute in a 2–0 home win over Vitória de Setúbal after having replaced Lisandro López.
Rabiola was loaned again for 2009–10, now to S.C. Olhanense which had just returned to the top division. He alternated between the first and the second levels in the following years, representing C.D. Aves (two spells), C.D. Feirense (where he was seriously injured in the knee) and S.C. Braga (originally signed by the latter to a four-and-a-half-year deal, he only appeared for the reserves during his spell).
On 8 June 2015, after suffering top flight relegation with F.C. Penafiel, Rabiola moved to Académica de Coimbra on a two-year contract. He scored only twice during his first and only season as his team met the same fate and, the following summer, joined fellow league club F.C. Paços de Ferreira, missing the entire campaign due to an anterior cruciate ligament ailment and not being registered subsequently.
Three youth levels comprised, Rabiola won 26 caps for Portugal and scored six goals. He made his debut for the under-21s on 4 June 2009, playing 33 minutes after replacing Braga's Yazalde in a 0–1 loss against Chile for that year's Toulon Tournament.
