The 24-year-old Nigerian international was given his marching orders for striking out with his elbow at BVB defender Dede in a heated local derby in Gelsenkirchen on February 22.
Schalke general manager Rudi Assauer described the punishment as "fair" after fearing that Agali's previous poor disciplinary record could be held against him.
"It's a decision that we can live with," he commented.
Meanwhile, the Royal Blues can hope for the return of injured stars Ebbe Sand, Sven Vermant and Christian Poulsen for the visit of Armenia Bielefeld on Saturday.
All three have been able to train this week and look likely to be available for selection.
