TORREON, Mexico (AP) - Argentinian striker Martin Bravo scored twice and the Torreon Santos routed the L.A. 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, from Cape Verde, in the 36th, also scored for Santos, who will face the winner of the quarterfinal series between Club America and Seattle.

Santos joined Queretaro in the semifinals.

The Mexican teams have dominated this tournament, winning the past 10 championships. Costa Rica’s Saprissa was the last non-Mexican team to win the CONCACAF Champions League, in 2005.

The L.A. Galaxy was trying to reach their first semifinals since 2012-13.
