It looks like he’s going to lose the ball but throws his body inbetween the defender and the ball and keeps possession.

Yes, besides all of his genius at dribbling and passing and scoring goals, Messi doesn’t try to cheat the game in any sense. He’s unique in today’s game where a lot of players would have just tried to draw the foul. Take a look at the video below.
