TORREON, Mexico -- Argentinian striker Martin Bravo scored twice and Santos routed the LA Galaxy 4-0 on Tuesday night to reach the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals.
Bravo opened the scoring in the 18th minute and added a strike in the 61st for the "Guerreros," who are trying to qualify for their first final since the 2012-13 season.
Ulises Davila scored in the 23rd minute and Djaniny Tavares in the 36th also scored for Santos, who will face the winner of the quarterfinal series between Club America and Seattle.
