The Brazilian striker will miss their final group game at home to Juventus for "violation of the principles of conduct".

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.

UEFA also ordered the striker to do "one full day of community football service".

Adriano scored a hat-trick as Shakhtar came away with a 5-2 victory to book their place in the knockout stage.

The suspension will have an impact on Chelsea, who need the Ukrainians to win to have any chance of going through.
