Because Captain Falcon is a fast falling heavyweight with subpar hitboxes and bad combo breakers, he is perfect for Luigi's combos, like up tilt strings and juggling. Since Captain Falcon takes a lot of shieldstun, has no counter-projectiles, and has kill moves that are unsafe on shield, he has a very high amount of trouble approaching Luigi. What sets him apart from other melee-exclusive fighters like Sonic is that Captain Falcon's combos are reliant on his opponent not having breakers. Unfortunately, Luigi's nair is perfect for just that, so automatically CF has lost the combo and damage racking game. Since Luigi's frame data is so fast (plus not having to worry about a range disadvantage like against Donkey Kong or Lucas), he can surprise more often, which gives him the kill advantage too. The main break CF gets is that because Luigi's recovery is predictable, a dair can punish Green Missile, and a well timed back air or Knee will keep Luigi away. At the same time, though, Luigi can edge guard to some extent; Fireballs can ledge trap, so CF has to recover low; otherwise, he is wide open for Luigi's very gruesome smashes.
Overall, this matchup is -2/+2 because Captain Falcon lacks a safe approach, gets comboed much harder, and is lacking in defensive options. He is one of Luigi's best 2 matchups (no surprise who the other one is).
