Boca Juniors player called Miguel Ángel Borja provocative and crafty

In an exciting superclásico in Argentina, Boca Juniors managed to beat River Plate 3-2, ensuring their advancement to the semifinals of the Professional League Cup. The match, characterized by its intensity and controversial moments, concluded with a victory for the blue and gold team, which also meant the elimination of its staunch rival.

Boca’s classification was sealed thanks to goals from Miguel Merentiel (x2) and Edinson Cavani; However, the prominence of the clash was not only for them. Colombian striker Miguel Ángel Borja also received the spotlight in the match and not only for his play, but also for some “off-color” behavior.

After the victory of the Xeneize team, central defender Marcos Rojo, the captain of the Bostero team, shared his impressions about what the climactic superclásico was and specifically referred to the encounter he had with the Colombian, where both saw the yellow card.

The defender emphasized that, according to his perspective, the provocation for the scuffle came from Borja. The defender argued that his reputation for aggressive play is undeserved, insisting that his interaction with the attacker was a reaction and not an intended action on his part.

“I was wrong to react because it was yellow called for him. Since the game started he was searching, colliding, throwing the ball… I don’t know if they sent him to do that or what. I was calm. We talked about that, that Borja was looking for trouble like hell. “We wanted to play football and nothing more.”

The dispute between Rojo and Borja became a focal point of discussion after the match, with the defender defending his style of play and clarifying the circumstances that led to his booking.

“I take this opportunity to say it now, they keep saying that I spend a lot of time beating myself up. River fans, journalism. It’s not like that, I was calm. At all times he came to look for me.”

One of the points that characterizes both players involved is their ability to resort to different distracting factors that take their rival out of the game and immerse them in a mental war where the weakest is the one who loses.

Despite having used his traditional “indigenous malice” tactics, Miguel Ángel did not manage to save his team from elimination and in the Copa Libertadores they will seek to heal a little the wound left by this unexpected exit from the League Cup.

Borja will be the top scorer in Argentine football

The one born in Tierra Alta is about to complete his second year in the millionaire institution and for the first time since his arrival he is being the protagonist of the team. With a total of 13 goals, Borja remains at the top of the table of top scorers in Argentine football.

Borja managed to score against Argentinos Juniors, Barracas, Vélez Sarsfield, Deportivo Riestra, Talleres, Rivadavia, Independiente, Rosario Central and now Boca Juniors. In his personal account he has, so far, a hat-trick (three goals) and two doubles.

With this score against the Xeneize team, Colibrí left behind Adrián Martínez, from Racing, who tied him at the top of the rankings with twelve goals. As it is, the only one still alive in the race for the scoring title is the Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, although he would have to perform a miracle to manage to take the crown from him, since the Uruguayan has only seven goals to his name.

For Cavani to take Borja’s position as scorer, he would have to make sure to play in the semi-final and final of the tournament in which he must score at least two pokers (four goals) to surpass him, a fact that seems impossible to achieve. With Infobae
