Hertha Berlin are a Bundesliga side and currently the only team from Germany’s capital playing in the top flight. Nicknamed Die Alte Dame they play their home games at the Olympiastadium. Their traditional kit is blue and white striped shirts, and blue shorts.
Founded in 1892, founder members of the German Football Association in 1900, and enjoyed their greatest success in the 1930s. They won back to back German championships in 1930 and 1931. They have also won the German Cup twice, but the most recent of those triumphs came in 2002, and they have not won a domestic trophy since. Hertha Berlin betting tips rarely feature them as prospective challengers for domestic honours.
With the erection of the Berlin Wall in 1961, Hertha lost a large part of their fan base. When the wall came down, their fan base swelled again.
The club has endured its fair share of financial issues over the years, which has caused the club to slip up and down the leagues in Germany, with things deteriorating so badly that they spent two seasons playing amateur football in the late 1980s. However, they have hauled themselves up again, and are now enjoying their sixth successive season back in the Bundesliga.
Those six seasons have seen the club, apart from one year where they flirted with relegation, establish themselves as a mid-table team, a Hertha Berlin prediction for this season envisages a similar outcome.
The best its supporters can hope for is a good cup run and qualification for the Europa League. However, it would be a brave Hertha Berlin tip to predict either for next season.
