Everton loanee Cenk Tosun did not make the matchday squad for Besiktas as he was ruled out with a knee tendon injury.
Tosun is, however, expected to recover in time for the weekend clash against Gaziantep which will be played at the Vodafone Park stadium.
The victory saw Besiktas join league leaders Galatasaray on 57 points.
The Black Eagles stayed second due to goal difference but moved three points clear of 3rd placed Fenerbahce.
Galatasaray and Fenerbahce will both play mid-week league games as well which will give Besiktas a game in hand.
The Lions take on Ankaragucu today while Fenerbahce face Antalyaspor tomorrow.
