Many substitutions for Atlético B during this friendly with the U19 Indonesian national team. Oscar Mena decided to involve players who have played fewer minutes and have them face a team that put up a fight and battled for every ball. The Asians took the lead with a goal from outside the box by Sittanggang that surprised Bernabé. Minutes later, Zubi would even the match in a first half where the chances to score were equal. Murdianto saved a shot from Borja Galán and Bernabé saved another from Hargianto.
In the second half, Mena’s team came out determined to win the match. Mena made the substitutions at the start of this period and Ian headed a centre from Yomba on 65 minutes. The Iranian Saeid, Diego Gama, the already mentioned Yomba, Otia and Mario Jelvic made their debut in a stage where the team was really close to scoring more goals. In short, Mena got to see what the future holds against an aggressive team where Evan Dimas and Paulo Sittanggang stood out.
