ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – If you bought tickets to next Monday’s soccer match at Busch Stadium in hopes of seeing soccer star Lionel Messi,  you’re out of luck.

The Argentine forward tore a muscle in his left thigh during a game on Sunday. He’s expected to be sidelined for the remainder of 2013 season. That means he won’t be playing in the match next Monday at Busch.
