Boyata, who was born in Uccle, Belgium, began his career with the Brussels youth squad before joining Manchester City in 2006. He played in both legs of City’s 2008 FA Youth Cup final against Chelsea, starting both games. In April 2009, he was named City’s Academy Player of the Month. From the start of the 2009–10 season, he was one of seven Academy players from his year who were promoted to training with the senior team.

On 2 January 2010, Boyata made his first-team debut against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup third round, playing center-back and assisting on a 1–0 victory at the Riverside Stadium. Nine days later, he made his league debut as a substitute against Blackburn Rovers, replacing Martin Petrov in the 86th minute of a 4–1 home triumph. On the 6th of February, he made his Premier League debut away against Hull City. For his efforts over both legs of the League Cup semi-final against Manchester United, he was awarded young player of the 2009–10 season.

He scored his first goal for the club in the Europa League play-off match against FC Timişoara on August 26, 2010, early in the 2010–11 season. His form continued to improve, and on September 25, he was selected to start against Chelsea, who had started the season unbeaten. Boyata started the game at right-back and put in a strong effort as City won 1–0. On the 24th of October, he was issued a red card just five minutes into a 3–0 home loss to Arsenal after fouling Marouane Chamakh while being the last man in front of the goal. During the 2010–11 season, he made 17 appearances and was an unused replacement as Manchester City won the FA Cup. Following that, Boyata spent the next two seasons on loan, first with fellow Premier League team Bolton Wanderers and then with FC Twente in the Netherlands.

Boyata joined Bolton Wanderers on a season-long loan on August 26, 2011. On September 10, he made his starting eleven debuts for Bolton Wanderers, playing the entire 5–0 home defeat to Manchester United. Boyata scored his first goal for Bolton Wanderers in a 5-1 away defeat to Chelsea on October 2, 2011. Boyata suffered an ankle injury in the 2–0 loss to Sunderland on October 22, and the injury, which kept him out for six weeks, required him to return to Manchester City as part of his loan agreement. In the encounter against Tottenham Hotspur on December 3, he returned to the Bolton starting lineup.

Boyata departed Manchester City on a short-term loan to FC Twente of the Dutch Eredivisie on August 31, 2012. Before rejoining Manchester City on January 8, 2013, he made 8 appearances for FC Twente.

On September 24, 2013, Boyata made his first Manchester City debut in over two years as he started a League Cup third-round encounter against Wigan Athletic. He helped his team keep a clean sheet in a 5–0 triumph, and he came close to scoring himself in the first half with a header that the Wigan goalkeeper deflected over the bar. He was sent off for two bookings in the third round of the FA Cup against Blackburn Rovers on January 4, 2014, in a 1–1 tie. In the League Cup Final, he was left out of City’s matchday team as they defeated Sunderland. Manchester City won the Premier League in 2013–14, however, Boyata was not eligible for a medal because he only played one league game. Boyota signed a contract extension with Manchester City on May 28, extending his stay at the club until 2016. Boyata played the entire 90 minutes in City’s season-opening 3–0 loss to Arsenal in the 2014 FA Community Shield on August 10th. In total, he made six appearances in his final season, one of which was a start.

Boyata signed a four-year contract with Scottish Premiership winners Celtic on June 2, 2015, for a price of around £1.5 million. On 15 July, he made his competitive debut against Stjarnan in a Champions League qualifier at Celtic Park, scoring the opening goal in a 2–0 win, then two weeks later, he headed Kris Commons’ cross for the late lone goal against Qaraba FK in the third qualifying round. Celtic’s defense, on the other hand, was abysmal in the first half of the season, when the club failed to qualify for the Champions League. Boyata was chastised for his performances, particularly after he gave away a penalty with a “clumsy” tackle during Celtic’s 2–1 defeat away at Aberdeen, and for several of the goals surrendered during Celtic’s UEFA Europa League run.

Boyata was cut from the team at the start of the 2016–17 season, but he worked hard in the gym to get back in shape. On November 18, 2016, he made his first start (and appearance) of the season in Kilmarnock’s 1–0 Scottish Premiership triumph. Boyata made his second appearance of the season on January 22, 2017, in a 3–0 Scottish Cup victory over Albion Rovers. In his following three league outings at Celtic Park, he scored two goals.

Boyata joined Hertha BSC on a free transfer in May 2019. On 14 September, he made his competitive debut as a late substitution for Javairô Dilrosun in a 2–1 loss to Mainz 05 in the domestic league’s fourth matchday. On September 29, Boyata scored his first goal for his new club, finishing the scoring in a 4–0 win over 1. FC Köln. Boyata took over as Hertha captain from Vedad Ibievi before of the 2020–21 season.

He has scored two goals in 12 appearances for Belgium’s under-19 team. On March 3rd, 2010, Boyata earned his Belgium U21 debut in a 1–0 win over Malta. He got his first senior international call-up five months later when he was chosen in the squad for a friendly against Finland. As a full first-team member for Manchester City, he continued to put in some great performances.

Boyata was selected by Belgium manager Georges Leekens for two Euro 2012 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Austria in late 2010. He didn’t play against Kazakhstan, but in a 4–4 draw with Austria on October 10, 2010, he made his debut as a half-time substitute for Toby Alderweireld. In August 2011, he was called up for a friendly match against Slovenia, but he did not participate.

In October 2015, he was recalled to the Belgium squad for Euro 2016 qualifiers against Andorra and Israel. He didn’t participate in either of these games but was called up again on March 29, 2016, for a friendly against Portugal.  When he came on as a substitute for Jason Denayer after 86 minutes, he earned his second cap.

He was nominated to Belgium’s preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia in May of 2018. Boyata was chosen to Belgium’s final 23-man roster for the 2018 World Cup on June 4, 2018. At the 2018 World Cup, he played every minute of Belgium’s group stage games, however, he was benched for the knockout stage as the country finished third.

Boyata was called up to Belgium’s final 23-man team for UEFA Euro 2020 in June 2021. In the competition, he appeared in two games.
