Ortigoza started his career with the Paraguayan club Sol de América, where he played alongside Pablo Zeballos. He quickly made a good impression and established himself as one of the team's best players, finishing second in goal-scoring in the Apertura 2008 tournament along with Julio Aguilar.[1] In 2009, Ortigoza was transferred to Palmeiras.

In January 2010, Ortigoza was loaned out to the K-League side Ulsan Hyundai FC from Sol de América.

In January 2011, he signed for Brazilian club Cruzeiro EC on loan.

Ortigoza transferred to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng in July 2012.[2] However, after scoring 2 goals in 10 appearances, he was released by Shandong in February 2013.

Ortigoza signed a contract with J1 League club Ventforet Kofu on 22 March 2013.[3] However, after scoring only 1 goal in 8 appearances, he was released by Kofu in June 2013.


On 11 November 2010, he earned his first international goals in a match against Hong Kong, scoring two goals.
