Frankfurt are currently 14th in the table, just four points ahead of 16th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf, who threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Koln in Sunday's late kickoff.
Koln actually did Frankfurt a big favour by picking up a point, but there is no question that Hutter's team will be in trouble if they continue to pick up poor results in the coming weeks.
Die Adler have lost each of their last five in the Bundesliga, including defeats to Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich since returning to action following a two-month break.
Frankfurt conceded five times against Bayern on Saturday afternoon, but they did score five in their last victory in Germany's top flight, which came at home to Augsburg on February 7.
The Eagles have finished eighth and seventh in their last two Bundesliga seasons but are seemingly facing a battle to secure their top-flight status for the 2020-21 campaign.
Freiburg, meanwhile, currently occupy seventh spot in the table, having picked up 37 points from their 27 matches during the 2019-20 campaign.
Christian Streich's team are only two points off Wolfsburg in sixth in a battle for a Europa League spot, but they have won just one of their last six in the Bundesliga.
Freiburg beat Union Berlin in their final match before play was postponed at the start of March, while they picked up an impressive point away to high-flying RB Leipzig last weekend.
Streich's side could not build on the draw at the Red Bull Arena, though, as they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to a struggling Werder Bremen side at the weekend.
Frankfurt Bundesliga form: WLLLLL
Frankfurt form (all competitions): DWLLLL
Freiburg competition form: DLLWDL
Streich could shuffle his pack from the side that started against Werder Bremen, with Amir Abrashi among those hoping to earn a spot in the starting XI.
Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Trapp; Toure, Hinterlegter, Ilsanker, Chandler; Rode, Fernandes; Da Costa, Gacinovic, Kostic; Silva
Freiburg possible starting lineup:
Schwolow; Schmid, Koch, Gulde, Gunter; Grifo, Hofler, Abrashi, Sallai; Petersen, Holer
We say: Frankfurt 1-2 Freiburg
Frankfurt are certainly due a result, but the fact that Freiburg lost at the weekend might count against the home side. Die Adler are conceding goals at a worrying rate at the moment, and we are finding it difficult to back them on Tuesday night when taking everything into consideration.
