Brazilian striker Leandro set up the opener and scored a late penalty as Nabisco Cup holders Kashiwa Reysol kept the Suruga Bank Championship trophy in Japan with a 2-1 win over Copa Sudamericana champions Lanus of Argentina on Wednesday night.

Kaoru Takayama gave Reysol the lead just before halftime at Hitachi Stadium, netting with a deflected shot after a through pass from Leandro, before Tatsuya Masushima diverted Leandro Somoza’s shot into his own net just before the hour mark.
