He spent most of his career with Gil Vicente, winning the Segunda Liga in 2011, and represented that team and S.C. Braga in the Primeira Liga. Additionally, he played in five foreign countries, providing a key role in Red Star's Serbian SuperLiga conquest in 2016.
Born in Barcelos, Hugo Vieira made his debut as a senior with FC Girondins de Bordeaux's reserve team, after finishing his formation with Santa Maria FC. In July 2007, he was loaned to G.D. Estoril Praia, but made no appearances for the side.
In 2009, Hugo Vieira signed for Gil Vicente F.C. in the Segunda Liga, helping achieve promotion to the Primeira Liga as champions at the end of the 2010–11 season. On 22 March 2012, he scored to open their 2–2 draw with S.C. Braga at the Estádio Cidade de Barcelos in the semi-finals of the Taça da Liga, eventually won in a penalty shootout.
Benfica / Braga
Hugo Vieira agreed to a four-year deal with S.L. Benfica on 18 May 2012. On 28 August, he was loaned to Spanish Segunda División club Sporting de Gijón in a season-long deal, but after being rarely used he returned to Gil on 22 January 2013, being loaned until June.
On 23 August 2013, Hugo Vieira moved to S.C. Braga after agreeing to a four-year contract, but started only once over the course of the top flight campaign. He returned to Gil Vicente for a third spell the following 30 January, on a temporary basis.
On 1 September 2014, Hugo Vieira joined FC Torpedo Moscow, newly promoted to the Russian Premier League. On his debut thirteen days later, he replaced Kirill Kombarov at the hour-mark and scored a consolation in a 1–3 defeat at FC Spartak Moscow.
In a season troubled by the death of his partner Edina Carvalho from cancer in January 2015, Hugo Vieira did not find the net again until the penultimate game, when his two penalties helped to a 3–1 win over FC Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast at the Eduard Streltsov Stadium. The team would eventually suffer a double relegation.
On 30 June 2015, Hugo Vieira signed a two-year deal with Red Star Belgrade. On 12 September, he scored twice in the 3–1 eternal derby home win against FK Partizan, and later said he had dedicated it to Carvalho. He netted a brace against FK Čukarički on 6 December (7–2 away triumph) and a hat-trick against FK Radnik Surdulica six days later (5–0, home), as the capital team went on to win a 27th title; the national footballers' union voted him player of the season, and he was a contender for top scorer until missing the final game against FK Radnički Niš, in which his teammate Aleksandar Katai overtook him to 21 goals.
On 7 January 2017, Hugo Vieira moved to the fifth foreign country of his career, signing for Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan– David Babunski made the same move from Red Star days later. He made his debut in the J1 League as a late substitute on 25 February, scoring the equaliser in a 3–2 home win over Urawa Red Diamonds in the season opener.
