Roberto Lago Soto (born 30 August 1985 in Vigo, Galicia) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Getafe CF as a left back.

Football career[edit]

Celta[edit]

A product of hometown Celta de Vigo's youth system, Lago made his debuts with the first team in the 2007–08 season, playing 33 matches for the Segunda División side which eventually finished 17th one year after being relegated. In the following years he was an undisputed starter when available, contributing with 35 games and one goal[1] in the 2011–12 campaign as the Galicians returned to La Liga.[2]

Lago's maiden appearance in the top flight was on 18 August 2012, starting in a 0–1 home loss against Málaga CF.[3] He only missed four contests during the season, as Celta eventually stayed up at the expense of neighbouring Deportivo de La Coruña.

Getafe[edit]

Lago joined fellow top-divisioner Getafe CF on 12 June 2013, signing a four-year contract with the Madrid oustkirts club.[4]
