Player to watch: Miguel Borja

The experienced forward from Colombia is River Plate's top scorer in Copa Libertadores this season with five goals, but he has yet to score in Primera Division.

Will Borja score first?

We saw Borja score the first goal in three games in Copa Liberatores this season, so we might see this happen again in the game against Tigre.
