The hosts head into the game off the back of a 2-0 victory over Ecuador-based outfit Independiente del Valle in the Copa Sudamericana.
Meanwhile, the visitors claimed a 1-0 win over Argentine side Independiente.
Red Bull Bragantino returned to winning ways last time out when they claimed a 2-0 victory over Independiente del Valle in the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana knockout stage tie.
In a game where Jonathan Bauman saw red, Fabricio Bruno and Eric Ramires scored in either half to hand Maurício Barbieri's men a vital first-leg win.
Red Bull Bragantino have seen their form take a slight dip in Serie A. They are currently on a two-game winless run, picking up back-to-back draws against Cuiaba and Atletico Paranaense.
However, they have enjoyed an impressive run this season and are currently unbeaten in the league, picking up six wins and five draws.
With 23 points from 11 games, Monday’s hosts are currently second in the Serie A table, two points behind first-placed Palmeiras.
Similarly, Santos claimed a Copa Sudamericana first-leg victory when they beat Independiente 1-0 on home turf on Thursday.
However, in their last Serie A outing, Fernando Diniz's men suffered a 3-2 defeat against league leaders Palmeiras.
It was the second league defeat in three games for Santos, who appear to have run out of steam.
The drop-off in form has seen Alvinegro drop out of the Copa Libertadores places into mid-table. They currently occupy ninth place on the log, level on 15 points with Flamengo and Atletico Goianiense.
