In the Greek playoffs home 4–2 win against Aris Thessaloniki F.C., Leonardo came in as a substitute in the 51st minute and scored twice.

The score was 1–0 against AEK, and Leonardo (who had also come in as a substitute that match) made the score 1–1 and equalized in injury time, giving AEK an invaluable point. In the 2011/12 season, he played in 26 matches scoring 9 goals, and was the club top scorer in the league.
