Central defender Marko Vušković is at risk of a long ban following suspected doping at Hamburger SV.

As reported by the German Football Association (DFB), the analysis of the B sample was also positive.

"Based on the results of the analysis of the B sample that are now available, it is assumed that there has been a violation of applicable anti-doping regulations," it says.

Vušković had tested positive for Epo during a training check in Hamburg on September 16 by the National Anti-Doping Agency Nada.

The DFB announced the result on November 12th.

A few days later, Vušković was provisionally banned.

The 21-year-old Croatian has always maintained his innocence.

Now the DFB sports court has to decide on possible sanctions.

"HSV will now examine and determine the next steps in close consultation with its players and in exchange with the DFB," said the second division club.

The standard penalty for doping offenses is four years.

If no fault is proven, the penalty can be reduced.
