Carrera was a sweeper or defensive midfielder, even though he initially covered the inside position. He played mostly for Vicenza, appearing in 102 matches between 1976 and 1981 − excluding the 1979-80 season at Torino. He was a major figure for Vicenza's promotion to Serie A in 1976-77 and for the historical second place in the top division the following year. He played also for Pavia, Reggiana, Bologna, Carpi, Olbia, Palermo and retired in 1992 after a few seasons at the minor club Bagnolese.
Carrera was considered a valid sweeper with a bright future but he wasn't too lucky. During his time at Vicenza, he never scored but he was very important for the attacking actions of Lanerossi because his playstyle as was to act as arrear playmaker who often pushed forward with the ball, making long strides either centrally or down the flanks. Many actions started from him, who worked well with the midfielders, exchanging accurate passes in triangulations and a variety of tactics. He showed good technique when he tried to dribble an opponent or when he made one of his frequent acrobatic clears. Whenever he saved a ball with an overhead kick, it looked like his tall but thin body was about to break but he always found the right balance. In defence, he was able at rejecting shots even from the goal-line, showing good reaction, and at closing the spaces.
