comment How exactly did Carvajal not get booked/sent off after causing a penalty?
Fantastic answer, thank you. While I disagree with some of your assessments, the rules you cite and the facts you put are pretty straight-forward. I just think that this would be a card in 95% of the cases, in any other game. Together with a couple of prior situations, it made me think that the ref was over-compensating for the pressure of the home fans, unconsciously favouring Real.

i stand corrected :) (I also just realised that there's a quotation from the Laws of the game in the accepted answer)

Why exactly would it be an indirect freekick, if the goalie doesn't handle the ball and just kicks it away? There might be an obscure rule, but I'm fairly certain that there's no ground in the Rulebook for that, if I didn't manage to misunderstand your statement.

comment Is the sweeper role obsolete with modern formations?
HI and welcome to Sports.SE. You have provided a really interesting, first hand experience on how the role works. However I am not sure if it actually answers the question; "Is the sweeper role obsolete with modern formations?"
