Miguel Ángel Borja scored his first two goals in the current Argentine league after 3 and 75 minutes in the game between River Plate and Arsenal.
Although the Colombian striker has had very little continuity in coach Martín Demichelis’ new system, he takes advantage of every opportunity that comes his way and has proven it once again.
Miguel Ángel started the game as the only striker of the “Millionaires” team and did not disappoint, on the contrary, he showed in a very short time that he is ready to be a first baseman and fight with anyone for the position.
A seemingly long pass from left-back Santiago Simón helped the Colombian stretch and initially hit the ball quite high, but he arrived at the perfect moment to hang the opposing goalkeeper and give Borja his first joy of this championship.

Already in the second half, when the game ended 2-1 for his team, Miguel Ángel had the necessary confidence to grab the ball and score the maximum penalty, which was awarded after an obvious handball.
The Colombian fooled the goalkeeper with the direction he would shoot and ordered the ball to be held to give River peace in a tight game.

With this goal, Miguel Ángel Borja scored his 19th goal in the 52 games he played as a River Plate player, which is equivalent to a goal every 128 minutes (just over a game), despite coming off the bench.
