The Red Bulls II host Cincinnati in a top-three clash Sunday, which player will lead his side to victory?

After clinching a berth the 2016 USL Playoffs, and entering the game on a four-game winning streak, the New York Red Bulls II host fellow USL Eastern Conference top-three side on Sunday evening that brings together two standout players from this season in the USL. 

After competing for the Red Bulls II as an Academy signing a year ago, Derrick Etienne Jr. has shone brightly for the Red Bulls II this season. The No. 3 selection on the USL 20 Under 20 list leads the side with five assists, to go with five goals, and this week was named to Haiti’s preliminary 33-player roster ahead of World Cup Qualifying games against Panama and Jamaica next week.

Cincinnati’s Andrew Weideman has done a little bit of everything for the expansion side, leading it to third place so far in the Eastern Conference with a chance at a top-two finish. Wiedeman is second on the side with five goals this season, and he has also notched a pair of assists as part of an FC Cincinnati attack that sits fourth in the USL Eastern Conference with 33 goals this season.

Which player do you think will lead his side to victory on Saturday afternoon?
