Felice Placido Borel (5 April 1914, Nizza Monferrato – 21 January 1993) was an Italian football player who played as a striker.

His older brother Aldo Borel played football professionally, spending 10 seasons in the Serie A, and their father Ernesto Borel played for OGC Nice, AS Cannes and Juventus F.C. in the 1900s and 1910s. To distinguish the brothers, Aldo was known as Borel I and Felice - as Borel II.

Borel was born in Nizza Monferrato, Italy. During his career, he played for Juventus and Torino in Serie A and, in Serie B, for Alessandria, and finally for S.S.C. Napoli, where he finished his career.

During the 1958–59 season, he was technical director of Catania.

He was part of the 1934 FIFA World Cup winning Italian national team.

He scored 157 goals for Juventus, and is currently Juve's sixth highest goal scorer.
