This is because Borghi is adamant there is no secret recipe to limit the Barcelona player's influence on the game and so he is better off focusing on things he can control - his own team.
"Nobody has the recipe [to stop him]," Borghi told reporters.
"In every game, he scores goals and plays well.
"You can put a personal marker on him, play a three-man, four-man defence and you still cannot stop him."
Chile play Argentina at the Estadio Monumental to kick-off CONCACAF's qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup. Borghi will be without their star player, who also happens to play for Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez, but he insists his side will be looking to win Friday's encounter.
"It is said a lot that it is good to salvage a point playing away. But in the  qualifiers we won quite a few games on the road which helped our qualification chances greatly," Borghi said.
"This team has not lost the intention of always going out to look for three points, wherever we are. Chile have the conviction to achieve the victory."
