The first team of C.D. Leganés experienced a new debut of a player from the youth categories in the last league matchday. Striker Dorian Junior played his first minutes with the first team in the match played at the Nuevo Los Cármenes against Granada C.F.

At the age of 22, Dorian, a full international with Equatorial Guinea but born in Leganés, made his debut in LaLiga SmartBank with the pepinera shirt after scoring thirteen goals with the reserve team in Segunda Federación, finishing the season as the second top scorer in his group. With the '39' on his back, Carlos Martínez gave him the alternative in the 81st minute, replacing Iker Undabarrena.
