The facts as we head towards Play-Off 1
What's that knocking ferociously at the door? It's the Play-Offs! Time to find out what you need to know about the Belgian final round. On possible top scorers and on 42 games won.
A PO1 goal for Wesley Moraes would mean he draws level with José Izquierdo on the top of the Club PO1 goal scorers list. He now shares second place with Maxime Lestienne and Lior Refaelov, eagerly followed by Ruud Vormer and Hans Vanaken, both with 9 goals.
When we take into account the PO1 top scorers across the entire Belgian competition, we find Jelle Vossen neatly in second place. His 18 goals at Genk and at Club put him behind firstplaced Mbaye Leye (Mouscron). With Leye out of the picture, will Jelle be going for that top spot?
10 out of 10 in Play-Off 1
Joining Anderlecht, Club is the only team to always have made it to Play-Off 1. Blauw-Zwart started three times in first place, five times as runners-up and twice as fourth ranked.
On average, Club Brugge reaps 16 out of 30 in POI, with 17 out of apossible 54 against Anderlecht, 18 out of 42 against Gent, 25 out of 36 against Genk and 17 out of 36 against Standard. Club is yet to play Antwerp in the Play-Offs.
In 90 Play-Off encounters so far, Club won 42 times, drew level on 19 occasions and lost 29 games, scoring 152 goals and conceding 111.
A first for Leko
Ivan Leko is the only to person to have featured both as a player and as a coach in the Play-Offs. In 2010-2011 and 2012-2013, he joined Sporting Lokeren in the Play-Offs, while he coached Club to the title last season and hopes to repeat that trick this time around.
