Besiktas edged out Antalyaspor 1-0 this evening to sit a point off the Super Lig lead.
Simao Sabrosa scored from the penalty spot in the tenth minute and that proved enough to see off Antalyaspor, who had Deniz Baris sent off in the last minute. It left Besiktas in third, a point behind leaders Istanbul Buyuksehir and Fenerbahce.
A second-half brace from Morten Rasmussen gave Sivasspor a 3-0 win over Bursaspor. Rasmussen scored in the 59th and 74th minutes to add to Michael Eneramo's 47th-minute opener.
Jan Rajnoch scored two minutes from time to earn Ankaragucu their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw at Genclerbirligi, who had opened the scoring through Soner Aydogdu in the 22nd minute.
Ankaragucu's leveller came two minutes after they were reduced to ten men when Serdar Ozkan was sent off. The day's other game, between Orduspor and Samsunspor, finished goalless.
