"UEFA has opened a proceeding against him and in compliance with the football governing body's rules, Dinamo cannot comment until the disciplinary procedure is over and the B sample result is announced."

Dinamo beat Arsenal 2-1 at home in their Group F opener on Sept. 16 before losing 5-0 at Bayern Munich two weeks later.

They are third in the section with three points from two games. Bayern lead the standings with a maximum six points while Olympiakos Piraeus are ahead of Dinamo on goal difference.

Dinamo released a statement to say club officials were "surprised" with Ademi's failed drugs test. "He had been tested six times in the past year and the results always came back negative."
