With top spot already secured, Salzburg may not feel the need to risk Hannes Wolf on Thursday. This should benefit Takumi Minamino or Xaver Schlager with a chance in the starting XI.
As this game is a dead rubber for Salzburg, head coach Marco Rose may also shuffle his pack and give opportunities to fringe players.
Marseille only need to avoid defeat to guarentee second place in Group I. They could even lose on Thursday and still progress, but only if Vitória SC and Konyaspor draw in the group's other match. The French giants have only dropped points in three home matches all season.
Salzburg are unbeaten in their last 19 matches, but have already secured top spot in the group. This is a dead rubber for the away side and that could swing the tie in the favour of Marseille, who still need a result from Thursday's clash.
