Don't give away silly fouls on the edge of the area.

Foul early (high up the pitch) and foul cynically. Share the bookings. Don't lose possession cheaply.

Easy.

Could name several clubs who diligently practice this.

Less cynically, just not trying to tackle (unless 110% sure you can get there) anywhere near the final third is a valid tactic. Just stand up and jockey them, be hard to get round. Make them continually recycle while we reset. It will mean defending a lot of crosses, but when facing such a free kick expert, that's probably the percentage way to defend
