Shakhtar have already qualified from Group E, but the Brazilian striker will miss the tie against Juventus "violation of the principles of conduct".

UEFA also confirmed that Adriano will have to perform one full day of community football service.

Adriano scored after team-mate Willian attempted to give Nordsjaelland possession of the ball following a break for injury, rounding the keeper and putting the ball in the net instead.
