A goal scoring hero against Anderlecht last time out, Eliseu will play at left back for Malaga against Milan tonight.
The Portuguese winger by trade is filling in for the injured Nacho Monreal.
Other absentees include Jeremy Toulalan and Sergio Sanchez.
Opponents Milan miss Nigel De Jong, Christian Abbiati and Robinho amongst others, and there is speculation they could appear in a highly unusual – for them – 3-4-3 formation.
Malaga: Willy; Gamez, Weligton, Demichelis, Camacho, Joaquin, Iturra, Eliseu, Isco, Portillo, Saviola
Malaga bench: Kameni, Duda, Recio, Seba, Santa Cruz, Fabrice
Milan: Amelia; Bonera, Mexes, Acerbi, De Sciglio; Montolivo, Ambrosini, Constant; Emanuelson, Pazzini, El Shaarawy
Milan bench: Gabriel, Yepes, Antonini, Nocerino, Flamini, Pato, Bojan
