    Big night for Mexican clubs as all win big in Champions Cup

    Mexican clubs had a banner evening in the CONCACAF Champions Cup on Wednesday, winning all three of the quarterfinal matches played and all three victors holding tremendous advantage to qualify for the semifinals.

    The closest match of the evening came in Guatemala City, where a late goal gave CD Toluca FC a valuable 2:1 away victory in their series with CSD Municipal.

    Paraguayan international José Saturnino Cardozo gave the visitors a ninth-minute lead, but Mario Acevedo equalized for Municipal four minutes before the break. But Miguel Almazan gave Toluca the victory with an 85th-minute strike.

    CD Necaxa also came away with a valuable away victory, scoring three second-half goals to grab a 4:1 victory against Los Angeles Galaxy.

    Juan Franco opened Necaxa's account on 27 minutes, before Alex Pineda Chacon leveled terms in the 36th minute. But Franco made it 2:1 in the 51st minute, then Luis Roberto Alves ('Zague') added a third in the 81st minute, then Miguel Larrosa all but settled the tie with a fourth three minutes from time.

    In Morelia, Mexico, CA Monarcas Morelia hammered Columbus Crew by a 6:0 scoreline to all but ensure their advancement.

    The visitors held out for nearly the entire first half, but goals from Roberto Palacios and Ismael Iñiguez put Monarcas two goals to the good just before the interval. Adolfo Bautista then scored two goals within the first 10 minutes of the second half, Reinaldo Navia and a second from Iñiguez ending the scoring.

    The second legs in all three series will be played on Wednesday 16 April, as will the first leg of the tie between Club América of Mexico and Costa Rica's LD Alajuelense.
