Kashima ends China interest in Asian Champs League quarters

Kashima Antlers cruised into their first Asian Champions League semifinals and ended Chinese participation by ousting Tianjin Quanjian 5-0 on aggregate on Tuesday.

Kashima, up 2-0 from the first leg, was in total control after first-half goals by Serginho and Hiroki Abe. Shoma Doi polished off the win in Macau, where the match was moved because Tianjin was hosting the World Economic Forum.

Kashima's semifinal opponent will be a South Korean team. Suwon Bluewings won the first leg at Jeonbuk Motors 3-0 and hosts its K-League rival on Wednesday.
