Born in Cambrils, Tarragona, Catalonia, Oriol played lower league or amateur football in his first four years as a senior. In the 2008–09 season he helped Villarreal CF's B-team promote to Segunda División for the first time ever, scoring two goals in 32 games.
Oriol made his debut for the main squad on 6 January 2010, playing the full 90 minutes and being booked in a 1–1 away draw against Celta de Vigo for the campaign's Copa del Rey. On 27 November of that year he made his first appearance in La Liga, starting in a 3–0 success at Real Zaragoza.
From 2011 to 2013, Oriol was both relegated and promoted with the Yellow Submarine, featuring in an average of 22 matches in the process. On 2 July 2013 the free agent signed a three-year contract with CA Osasuna, with a €5 million clause.
In early August 2014, following Osasuna's relegation, Oriol agreed to a one-year deal with the option of a further year with Football League Championship side Blackpool, linking up with his twin brother Eduard. On 12 January 2015, his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
