Club careerEdit

Born in La Plata, Buenos Aires Province, Dubarbier made his senior debut with hometown's Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, later having a short spell with Olimpo de Bahía Blanca. In January 2008 he moved abroad, signing with CFR Cluj from Romania.[1]

In February 2010, Dubarbier moved teams and countries again, joining Ligue 1 side FC Lorient.[2] On 14 January of the following year he was loaned to CD Tenerife in Spain,[3] remaining in the country the following seasons.

Dubarbier signed for fellow Segunda División club Córdoba CF on 30 January 2012, in the same situation.[4] The move was made permanent in August,[5] and he scored twice during the campaign[6][7] to help the Andalusians rank in 14th position; he was reconverted in a left back in the process.[8]

On 28 June 2013, Dubarbier joined UD Almería in La Liga for an undisclosed fee.[9] He made his debut in the Spanish top flight on 19 August, starting in a 2–3 home loss to Villarreal CF.[10]

On 24 July 2015, Dubarbier agreed to an extension with the Rojiblancos until 2019.[11] On 7 December of the following year, however, he terminated his contract after alleging personal problems,[12] and joined Estudiantes de La Plata two weeks later.[13]

Dubarbier returned to Spain on 15 June 2018, with the 32-year-old signing a one-year deal at Deportivo de La Coruña as a free agent.[14]
