Queretaro ease past DC United, Santos Laguna trash LA Galaxy in CONCACAF Champions League

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

It was a Liga MX party in the second legs of Tuesday's CONCACAF Champions League action.

Queretaro 1-1 (3-1 agg.) DC United

Queretaro took advantage of their 2-0 win over DC United in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champion League clash to progress to the semifinals of the competition with a 3-1 aggregate scoreline.

The tie belonged to Queretaro from the start after Angel Sepulveda got the opener after only four minutes.

Tiago Volpi impressed once again and denied Chris Rolfe from the penalty spot early in the second half.

DC United did get a consolation goal late on, though, and Julian Buscher converted a brilliant shot from distance to decorate the final scoreline at 3-1.

Santos Laguna 4-0 (4-0 agg.) LA Galaxy

Santos Laguna's hopes of winning their first CONCACAF Champions League are alive and well after beating the LA Galaxy 4-0 at the Estadio Corona on Tuesday night.

After a goalless first leg at StubHub Center, Santos began brightly and might have gone ahead on seven minutes when Nestor Araujo's header struck Giovani Dos Santos on the goalline.

But it didn't take long for Luis Zubeldia's men to take the lead when Jesus Molina hooked the ball across for Martin Bravo to fire home acrobatically following a corner.

Santos doubled their lead four minutes later. Martin Bravo picked up the ball on the right wing and found Ulises Davlia, whose shot took a deflection before nestling into the back of the net.

Next, Robbie Rogers failed to deal with Djaniny on a corner and the Cape Verde international headed through the despairing dive of Dan Kennedy to score the 3-0.

In the second half, Martin Bravo put a seal to a perfect night for the Guerreros when he pounced from a brilliantly orchestrated breakaway to score Santos Laguna's fourth and final goal.
