[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] For the second year in a row, the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League will be an all-Mexican affair. UNAM made sure of that, getting two goals from former Chivas USA striker Juan Francisco Palencia and crushing Marathon of Honduras, 6-1, to avenge the only loss by a Mexican team in the two-leg quarterfinals.

Pumas will meet Cruz Azul, and Toluca and Pachuca will face off in the semifinals.

Pumas trailed, 2-0, going into the second leg, but it quickly tied the series on goals by Pablo Barrera and Ismael Iniguez in the first 22 minutes.

Iniguez put UNAM ahead with a shot from 25 yards in the 35th minute.

Palencia set up Martin Bravo to make it 4-0 after the interval and then added two goals of his own.

The only Marathon goal came when Pumas goalkeeper Alejandro Palacios let Jehu Chiapas' back pass from midfield under his foot and into the net.
