The two countries start their Euro 2016 campaign in Nice today, with Germany and Ukraine completing the Group C line-up.
"I have not really analysed their games a lot," Poland goalkeeper Fabianski said.
"But I guess it will be proper physical football, a lot of set-pieces which will tough to defend. We will be expecting a lot of intensity and passion from Northern Ireland. We have been lucky that we played against Scotland and the Republic of Ireland in the qualifiers. So we know what to expect."
