Three Colombians were present at the superclásico: Frank Fabra in Boca, and Juan Fernando Quintero and Miguel Borja, in River.

Fabra was the best qualified by the specialized press of Argentina, the newspaper Olé gave him 6.5 points. TyC Sports gave him 6.

“He looked for Ramírez to go on the attack, but he cost him a lot in the PT”, said Olé.

Quintero and Borja lived another reality, who were cut down by the gaucho media. Juan Fernando Quintero hardly had a 3 in the note of the newspaper Olé.

“He had a little interference in the setup. He felt an annoyance and Gallardo took him out at the beginning of the complement to put Barco in. He lacked more rhythm and continuity in the game. River needs much more of his creativity Ole said.

For its part, TyC SPorts rated Quintero with 4.

The same newspaper Olé put Borja 4 in the note. “On the pitch for Solari at the beginning of the second half. He didn't have clear scoring situations. He held the ball longer with his back than he received in front of the goal.”

Borja received a 3 in the writing of TyC Sports.

In social networks, fans were very critical of Borja's performance, who started as a substitute.
