Club America made short work of Tauro FC for the second time in a week in a 3-1 win that sees the Liga MX club through to the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals 7-1 on aggregate.

Henry Martin scored twice inside of 20 minutes for the visitors to put the already out-of-reach tie to bed for the Miguel Herrera's club.

Alejandro Diaz headed in America's third in the 67th minute before the hosts pulled one back with a smashing effort from Julio Sanchez to ensure the Panamanian club didn't exit the quarterfinal tie without a goal.

America will play Toronto FC, who outlasted Tigres in a thrilling affair on Tuesday night, in the semifinals starting on Tuesday, April 3.
