The 23-year-old performed well in his 45-minute display against Olympiacos in the Champions League in midweek when handed a fifth start of the campaign.
Barcelona are still without Rafinha, Arda Turan and Jordi Alba, meaning that Lucas Digne continues to deputise at full-back for the latter, as the Catalan giants go in search of a 17th successive home league victory.
In terms of the visitors, they are without a number of first-team players for their trip to the league leaders due to a mixture of injury and suspension.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Mascherano, Umtiti, Digne; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, L.Suarez, Deulofeu
Subs: Cillessen, Semedo, Pique, D.Suarez, Paulinho, Alcacer, Gomes
Malaga: Prieto; Rosales, Baysse, Hernandez, Juankar; Adrian, Rolon, Keko; Castro, Rolan, Penaranda
Subs: Cengo, Baston, Juanpi, Cifuentes, Cecchini, Robles, Mula
