He started his football career with Pro Patria in Serie D and here he met Luciano Re Cecconi and became friends. Cecco suggested his signing and in 1973 he moved to Rome.

That year Lazio won the scudetto and Borgo made a single Serie A appearance in Lazio Cesena when he came in for Vincenzo D’Amico 15 minutes from the end. He also played in the last two Coppa Italia games against Juventus and Palermo. Concentrating on the campionato, manager Tommaso Maestrelli preferred to play with the B side in those games. Borgo also played in the Viareggio youth tournament and was voted best player. Lazio were beaten by Fiorentina in the final. Bruno Giordano and Lionello Manfredonia were also in that team, coached by Paolo Carosi. Borgo was one of the protagonists however of the Under 23 championship (a new formula for the reserves championship) which the Biancocelesti won, beating Fiorentina 4-0 in the replay final. Lazio had won the first leg but had lost the second, so a final game had to be played. Borgo made 21 appearances with 2 goals.

At the end of the season Borgo was loaned out to Foggia in Serie B, but he returned to the capital for the 1975-76 season. Here he made just two appearances and in the summer was sold to Pistoiese. He was one of the protagonists of the remarkable double promotion from Serie C to Serie A. Here he played alongside Mario Frustalupi, one of the heroes of the Lazio scudetto, Mauro Bellugi, who won a scudetto with Inter in 1971 and was part of the Nazionale in the 1978 World Cup, and Marcello Lippi, future Juventus, Inter and Italy manager. He played nine years in Tuscany and became captain.

After this long experience he left and played with Spezia for three years. In his first, the club was promoted to C1. His final two years were with Rondinella and again Pistoiese.

Once he stopped playing, he became a sporting director and worked for Aosta, Spezia, Neftochimic Burgas in Bulgaria, Novara, for whom he was also manager for a brief period, and Derthona. In 2018 he was sporting director for Cuneo but the club went bust.

Borgo was a midfielder and will always be remembered as part of the Lazio 1973-74 scudetto squad, despite having played very little, and winner of the Under 23 championship.
