GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador (AP) -- Mario Regueiro scored once in each half as Argentine club Lanus beat Ecuador's Emelec to move into top spot in Group 2 in the Copa Libertadores.

Bolivia's Bolivar defeated Colombia's Junior 2-1 in Group 3 in Tuesday's other match.

Lanus now leads Group 2 with seven points from four matches, two clear of Brazil's Flemengo and and three ahead of Paraguay's Olimpia.

Regueiro opened the scoring from close range in the 5th minute and, after Emelec missed two good chances, he wrapped up the result from the penalty spot in the 88th after Hugo Pavone was brought down just inside the area.
