However, Rizespor managed to almost get themselves back in the game when Ismail Koybasi and Damjam Djokovic scored in quick succession on 87 and 89 minutes.
Besiktas did, however, manage to hang on to all three points for their second win in two weeks.
The win moved the Black-Whites five points clear of second-placed Galatasaray.
Fenerbahce could still leapfrog Galatasaray and move into second place, cutting Besiktas’ lead to three points if they beat Alanyaspor tonight.
