SHAH ALAM: Selangor kicked off their Asia Challenge campaign by overcoming Indonesia's Persib Bandung 3-0 at the Shah Alam Stadium here, on Saturday.
The 33-time Malaysia Cup champions, who did not field Khyril Muhymeen Zambri, Rufino Segovia and Nor Hakim Hassan, dominated the match against an experimental Persib side.
Captain Taylor Regan opened scoring for Selangor off a Sandro Mendonca pass after just 10 minutes.
Brazilian Mendonca added the second in the 41st minute with a well-taken effort.
Just before the half-time whistle, right-back Syahmi Safari, off a Ifedayo Olusegun assist, scored Selangor's third goal.
In an earlier match, Thailand's Bangkok United secured a 3-0 win over Vietnam's Hanoi FC.
On Sunday, Hanoi FC take on Persib for third place while Selangor face Bangkok in the final.
