The Aussie proved to be the difference-maker in the Europa League fixture this morning, giving his side the upper-hand in the first round of European fixtures.

Holland got on the end of a near-post corner on the brink of half-time giving LASK the upper-hand leading into the break.

The Austrian side held on to claim an important win in a Europa League group that includes Sporting Lisbon and PSV Eindhoven.

The former A-League player has appeared in every game for LASK in the Austrian Bundesliga this season with his team lying in second place.Β 

Holland, 30, hasn't made an appearance for Australia since 2014 but will be hoping his regular impact on the European stage will put him in contention for a call-up for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Elsewhere in Europa League action, Manchester United managed a 1-0 win over Kazakhstan side FC Astana, while Arsenal dominated Eintracht Frankfurt with a 3-0 win.Β
