Born in Vilagarcía de Arousa, Pontevedra, Abalo joined local Celta de Vigo for his last year as a junior, then proceeded to make his senior debuts with the B-team in Segunda División B. On 3 December 2006 he made his first official appearance with the main squad, coming in as a late substitute in a 2–2 La Liga away draw against RCD Mallorca; in late July 2009 he extended his contract with the Galicians until 2013, with a buyout clause of €10 million.
From 2008 to 2011, with Celta in Segunda División, Abalo was an important first-team element. However, in the 2011–12 season, as the club returned to the top flight after an absence of five years, he only contributed with four games and 67 minutes, being subsequently loaned in quick succession to Gimnàstic de Tarragona and S.C. Beira-Mar (the latter in Portugal).
On 26 June 2013, Bulgarian champions PFC Ludogorets Razgrad announced they were set to sign Abalo after he became a free agent shortly after. The transfer was completed the following day after he passed his medical, and the player agreed to a two-year contract, being given the number 17 shirt.
Abalo played his first game with his new team on 17 July, featuring in a 1–2 away defeat against ŠK Slovan Bratislava for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. He made his league debut three days later, in a 0–1 loss at FC Lyubimets 2007; in the second leg tie against Slovan on the 24th, he scored twice for a 3–0 win at Ludogorets Arena and the subsequent qualification.
