So much for having the advantage after the first leg.

The L.A. Galaxy were bounced from CONCACAF Champions League play after a 4-0 loss to Santos Laguna on Tuesday night. After the team was so encouraged with its scoreless draw at home in the first leg of the quarterfinal series, getting smoked in the second leg just shows how much work the Galaxy have left to do.

L.A. gave up two goals on set pieces, struggled to maintain possession in the midfield and failed to generate any offense. In their three preseason games and two CCL games, the Galaxy have scored a combined three goals. Two of those came in the friendly against FC Shirak.

The team opens the MLS season on Sunday against D.C. United at StubHub Center at 7 p.m.
