By | March 29, 2012

With the Playoffs starting on Friday, I’ve chosen 15 players to follow; for each one, there’s a question to be answered. That could be re. fitness, a potential move or their motivation. Here are the15 …

Matias Suarez – will the Anderlecht playmaker be fully fit and turn it on for the league leaders?

Milan Jovanovic – he’s a big game player, will the playoffs be enough of an incentive for him or will he fade away?

Lucas Biglia – will the Anderlecht captain impress clubs enough to get him the big move he craves?

Cheikhou Kouyate – the young Anderlecht centre back says he’s not ready for the Premier League yet, but could he be good enough? What will the Playoffs show?

Sebastian Pocognoli – Will the Standard defender show that he should be Belgium’s left back?

Michy Batshuayi – with Cyriac out, the teenage striker has a big chance for Standard, will he get it and will he take it?

Lior Rafaelov – the Israeli midfielder has been impressive for Club Brugge in a free role, will he attract suitors?

Jordi Figueras – likewise for Club Brugge’s new centre back, will he continue to shore up their defence and improve his standing at the club?

Vadis Odjidja – he’s back from injury, will he be back to his top form at Club Brugge?

Christian Benteke – lots of goals for Genk but he has still to convince fans he’s the real deal; can he do it?

Hans Van der Bruggen – a young midfielder with a big future; will he get a chance in the Playoffs now that Gent’s Tim Smolders is on the way out?

Yassine El Ghanassy – Gent are rumoured to be ready to let him go if the price is right but will they play him to show he’s worth the money?

Anthony Vanden Borre – Genk’s talented defender; there are two Anthony Vanden Borres, which one will turn up for the Playoffs?

Steven Joseph-Monrose – it was a surprise when the French U21 international joined Kortrijk; will the Playoffs give him a showcase to move (if he wishes)?

Dalibor Vaselinovic – the Serb striker is on loan at Kortrijk from Anderlecht, will he try to prove he can replace Dieumerci Mbokani, if the Congolese hitman decides to park his Bentley somewhere else?
