The road started fast, with that Goal by Colombian Miguel Borja, two minutes into the match. “I think we got off to a good start, with 15 or 20 minutes it looked like we could score a lot more goals. But they found the set-ball goal that helped them a lot. In the final we came out better and, thank God, we got a good victory,” said the striker after the match.

Borja had not been a starter but a coach Martin Demichelis It gave him the opportunity as the lone striker from the start and he didn’t miss it. El Colibrì ensured that he was working double shifts to be physically fit. “It’s not always possible to work double the day, but I do it when I can. He wanted to go back to playing as a starter, especially at Monumental. The more dates you play, the more trust and that’s what I always ask God for,” he added.

The competition between the forwards is another of the points that the millionaire manager is encouraging. And for Borja it’s fine. “The goal is clear, to always be first until the end, regardless of who plays. We support each other. All the strikers River has are very good and this is the most important thing.”

Now comes the trip to Peru to face Sporting Cristal on Thursday at the National Stadium in Lima. “I think it will be a very open match, with many chances because they too will go looking for victory. We have to play a good game in Peru,” he concluded.

Borja will now join the list of players who have scored in a win against Platense, River’s beaten rivals more than 70% of matches. In total they played 152, with 97 millionaire wins, 31 draws and only 24 wins for Squid. It was River’s eighth consecutive win, their fifth for the First Division tournament, plus three more in domestic cups, one in the Argentine Cup and two in the League Cup.

River also went 12 games without losing against Platense, with 11 wins and only one draw. Calamar’s last victory was 27 years ago: on 9 June 1996, when they won 2-1 at home, with brace from Esteban Fuertes. Meanwhile, they haven’t lost at the Monumental since 7 August 1994 (1-3): they played 8 games, 6 wins and 2 draws.
